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.
