Renew / Replace Card

How often do I need to renew my card?

The registration period for borrowers who provide proof of address in the City of Rockford is three (3) years. The registration period for borrowers with proof of residence in a social service facility or place of long-term temporary lodging in the City of Rockford is one year. Registrations may be renewed without limit.

What happens if I don’t renew my card?

Library User records are deleted if the card is not renewed within thirteen months after expiration and if fines owed is less than $5.

What if my card was lost or stolen?

It is the borrower’s responsibility to notify Rockford Public Library promptly of a lost or stolen card. If loss/theft is not reported, the Library card holder is responsible for all material charged to the card.

Card holders will be held responsible for fines levied prior to the date the loss/theft of the library card is reported, as well as the value of any material borrowed. Patrons will not be held responsible for fines after the date on which the loss/theft is reported.

 

Replacement cards carry a minimal fee.
