- Be Responsible
- Be Respectful
For the full list of rules please ask the Youth Services Desk.
Good Books for Kids and Teens
If you or your child(ren) need a library card, cards are issued to residents of incorporated Matteson at no cost. Just come to our library with a photo ID that has your home address on it as well as one other item that has your home address on it, such as an electricity bill. You’ll fill out some paperwork at the Service Desk and get the library card that day.
Digital Library Cards
If you are Matteson resident who is unable to come to the library to get a physical card, you can go here to get an eResource Library Card. This e-card can be used to access databases as well as check out digital items like ebooks and downloadable audiobooks from resources like Overdrive and Hoopla, just like a physical card can. The only limitation is the eResource Library Card cannot check out physical items.
Are you a student who lives in Rich Township, Illinois, and needs to earn volunteer hours?
The library is offering a new volunteer opportunity where participants will not be required to enter the library’s building. We are looking for 7th to 12th graders to create short (about 2 minutes) videos reviewing a book that can be checked out from Matteson Area Public Library District. Students can do reviews of books, audiobooks, or ebooks, but they must be written for youth. Videos can be simple selfies or showcase a volunteer’s artistic or editing skills.
