Borrowing Materials4 Fremont Library cards fanned out, red, blue, yellow and black.

You must have a library card in order to check out materials.  A valid Illinois driver’s license or State ID may also be registered with the library, or use the Library App to display your library card barcode from your phone. 

We also have a self-checkout system that uses an iPad at the Checkout desk or your own mobile device. Download the MeeScan app and use it the next time you are in the library to bypass the Checkout Desk!

There are no late fees at Fremont Public Library.

Renewable items will automatically renew 3 days before they are due if no one else is waiting for the item.
Choose email notification to receive a notice with the new due dates and/or a list of those titles that could not be renewed.
Even if you do not have email notifications selected, your items will still be auto-renewed. Check your account for more information.

Freedom From Fines!

  • We do not charge late fees*, but items still have due dates.
  • You are expected to return or renew items by their due dates.
  • If you have an item out more than 2 weeks past its due date, you can't check out any more until the item is returned.
    45 days after an item was due the item will be considered lost and you will be billed. At that point you may return the item or pay the bill.
  • If you find a lost item within 1 week after paying to replace it, you may receive a refund.

*Materials obtained via InterLibrary Loan may have late fees or other charges passed along by the lending library.

Borrowing from Other Libraries (ILL)

Fremont Library is part of the Computer Cooperative Services (CCS) Consortium, so we are able to seamlessly order in most materials from any of the libraries who share our catalog. Fremont cardholders may also order items from libraries outside the consortium by contacting the Adult Help Desk at 847-566-8702 or through the chat feature.
