Temporary Library Cards Available

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent library closures statewide, the Illinois State Library is allowing the Ida Public Library to offer free limited-use library cards to Boone County residents who live outside of a library service area and do not support a public library in their property taxes. These cards will allow access to the library’s electronic resources for a limited period of time which will be helpful in supporting students’ e-learning as well as in meeting other informational and recreational needs.

Apply for a Temporary Card

To apply for a free limited-use card, complete the online form. A library staff member will contact you via email to complete the process and provide a library card number. You will have access to our online resources during the current building closure.
