How do I get a Library Card?

Getting a Library Card with the Sugar Grove Public Library is a quick process when you're prepared! You will need to fill out an application, show staff a photo ID and a second proof of residency, and we'll do the rest.

Visit the circulation desk at the Sugar Grove Public Library during regular library hours with your photo ID and proof of residency to register for a library card. All patrons must be present to be issued a card, so make sure if you're applying for your kids that you bring them with. All registrations must be completed on the Library premises or in the presence of a Library staff member.

How do I register for a program?

To register for a program, follow these steps:

  1. Visit our Events Calendar
  2. Once you've located the program you are interested in registering for, click on the title of the program on the calendar page. This will pop up a small screen on top of the calendar with more information on the event.
  3. Scroll down until you see 'View More' in a gray bar across the bottom of the pop-up screen. Click 'View More'.
  4. If registration is still open for the program, this will take you to a registration page. Fill in your information on the form and click 'Submit'.

How do I make a program suggestion? 

If you have an idea for a library program or are interested in presenting a program, please submit the Program Proposal Form. On a rolling basis, library staff will review the proposals and respond to those most closely aligned with our strategic priorities and community needs.

Please keep in mind that library programs are generally planned a couple of months ahead to allow for adequate promotions and to secure meeting rooms. The library does not offer programs of a commercial nature. Library-sponsored program must have a special education, information, or cultural value to the community. Examples of programs that would be considered of a commercial nature include, but are not limited to, presentations offered for free but with the intention of soliciting future business.

How do I volunteer at the Library?

The Sugar Grove Public Library is always looking for volunteers! If you're over the age of 13, you can fill out a Volunteer application and email it to or bring it to the Circulation desk.

Volunteers keep shelves organized, shelve books, take care of the grounds (weeding, planting, cleaning outside), assist during the summer reading program, and help with other special projects and events. The Library accepts volunteers age 13 and older, and has a VolunTEENs program exclusively for people ages 13 - 18.
