Any family or individual that lives in an under served district that is not Monroe Township may purchase a library card for $85.00. This card is good for one year from the date it is issued.

 

Public Library Access Card (PLAC):

Any Indiana resident who has a valid library card in good standing with their home library may purchase a PLAC card for $65.00. This card is good for one year and may be used at any Public Library across the state. This card does not have the privileges of full access to the Evergreen Consortium.

The library will not accept handwritten documentation such as lease agreements or handwritten envelopes. Post Office boxes are not accepted as mailing addresses.
 

For Resident and Non-Resident applicants, the library requires an accepted form of photo ID and accepted proof of residency document. Non-Resident Tax Payers must present an accepted form of photo ID and a current paid property tax bill listing their name and the address of the property owned within the library district.
 

For PLAC cards, the library requires an accepted form of photo ID and we must verify that the applicant is in good standing with their home library.
 

Juveniles under the age of 18 are eligible for library cards and are exempt from the documentation requirement provided their responsible party has a library card in good standing.

 

Renewing a Library Card:

In order to renew your account, cardholders over 18 are required to produce an accepted form of photo ID and an accepted proof of residency document. This is an opportunity for the library to make sure that your contact information and residency status is correct. Juvenile accounts can be renewed by the responsible party listed on the account. If the responsible party has changed, a new application will need to be completed with the new responsible party signing the application.
 

At the time of renewal for Non-resident and PLAC cards, annual fees are due. The price associated with these cards is subject to change on a yearly basis.
