There's a New Card in Town

The new Melrose Park Library Card is here and it boasts a sparkling new design. New cards also come with a key tag so that you can place it on a key ring. The Melrose Park Public Library Card is available for free to residents of Melrose Park's 60160 zipcode. The card allows you to checkout materials from MLS libraries, access Internet computers in the library, use subscription databases, and checkout Museum Passes. If you are replacing your card, there is a $3 replacement fee.
