WLS Welcome Card Registration

Probation officers and case managers:

The WLS Welcome Card is a six-month temporary library card.  Those navigating re-entry after incarceration are offered this card as a way to assure access to library services.  The card is activated (and can be renewed) upon the request of a probation officer or case manager.  The card can be replaced with a permanent card at any library for which the required identification can be produced.

To register a WLS Welcome Card, please complete the form below.  You will receive a confirming email when the card has been activated.  This will be done within 1-2 business days.

Don’t have a card to activate? If you represent an agency serving a re-entry population, contact us via the ASK US! button above. Tell us about your agency and how we can contact you.
