Get a Library Card

If you live in Wheaton or own property in Wheaton, you can have a WPL card for no charge. If you live outside of Wheaton you can have a WPL card for a fee based on your property taxes. If you have a card from another library in Illinois, you can register it at WPL to check out our physical materials. Learn more about borrowing and how to get a library card
