Property owners residing in unincorporated Cook County are considered by law to be non-residents. Non-residents must purchase a library card in order to use the Glenview Public Library. More information can be found in our Borrowers’ Card Policy.
Businesses located within the Village of Glenview (i.e., that are actually doing business and have a permanent business address within the Village of Glenview) are eligible to apply for and obtain Business Library Cards from the Glenview Public Library, free of charge. Businesses located in the Glenview Public Library Non-Resident Service Area (whether owning or renting) may purchase Business Library Cards for an annual fee calculated on the same basis as for non-resident taxpayers.
