Get a Library Card

The library is open for Grab & Go & Curbside service. If you live in Wheaton, you can apply online for a library card to access to premium databases and online learning resources. Fill out this form to get this Databases Only library card. Full WPL cardholders may download eContent (ebooks, audiobooks and magazines) and borrow physical materials. They may also place holds, LINKin and Interlibrary Loan requests.

To convert the Databases Only card into a WPL card with full privileges please come to the library during Grab & Go service with identification that shows your name and current Wheaton address. Residents younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian present to receive a WPL card. There is no charge for your library card if you live within Wheaton city limits. If you live in unincorporated Wheaton you may purchase a 1-year WPL card with full privileges and each member of your household receives a card. To calculate the cost, find the Net Taxable Value listed on your property tax bill and multiply it by 0.002810. That amount is valid through December 31, 2020 and is included in your property taxes if you live within Wheaton city limits.
