Fishing and Hunting Licenses Available at Six Mile Regional Library District

Fishing and Hunting Licenses Available at Six Mile Regional Library District

Granite City – Monday, August 28, 2017

You can get more than a library card at the Six Mile Regional Library District! Now, at the Delmar Avenue library, you can also get your Illinois Department of Natural Resources non-commercial fishing and hunting licenses.

As far as our research shows, SMRLD is the first, and only, Illinois library and the second library nation-wide to sell fishing and hunting licenses. The Gunderland Public Library in Gunderland, New York was the first and, for a long while, only library in the country to sell fishing and hunting licenses.

Stop by our Customer Service Desk, 2001 Delmar Avenue, Granite City, Monday through Thursday 9 AM – 8 PM and Friday and Saturday 9 AM – 5 PM for your IDNR licensing needs.

Illinois Resident first-time purchasers need to bring proof of residency as well as an Illinois Driver’s License or ID, or Social Security Card, and Date of Birth. For Illinois Resident renewals, your previous IDNR license is adequate.

Those living outside of Illinois need to bring their previous IDNR license, or other state Driver’s License, or Social Security Card, and Date of Birth. A social security number will be required of all US citizens for the purposes of attaining an Illinois license.

Our mission: The Library makes a significant difference in the everyday lives of the people, institutions, and communities of Granite City, Mitchell, and Pontoon Beach by listening, understanding, and then transforming needs into proactive library services.

For more information, call (618) 452-6238.
