Getting Your Reader's Card

The Newberry welcomes researchers into the reading rooms who are at least 14 years old (or in the ninth grade) and curious about the humanities.

Unfortunately, due to the latest surge of COVID-19 in Chicago, the Newberry is closed to the public until further notice. Please visit for updates regarding library operations. If you need virtual assistance with your research, Newberry reference librarians are here to help. Contact us at
