How do I get a library card?

Patrons residing or owning property within Kansas Township are entitled to a library card at no charge. A portion of the property taxes paid each year goes to support the library. Patrons living outside Kansas Township must pay a fee of $40.00 per year.

This fee is calculated by a general mathematical formula mandated by the Illinois State Library [75 ILCS 5/4-7 (12) and 75 ILCS 16/30-55.60].


Not sure if you live or own property in Kansas Township?  You can check your property tax statement, it will show you pay tax to Kansas Library, or enter your street address on this US Census Bureau website.
