Cards and Checkout

Residents of Williamsport and Washington Townships that are real property taxpayers will be issued a library card upon request and with proper identification. Children under the age of sixteen (16) must have a parental signature and state issued ID on file.

Adams Township, Pine Township, and Jordan Township have a year-to-year contractual agreement with the library to pay the non-resident fee for residents of their township. One library card per family will be issued upon request and with proof of residency in the township. Liberty Township agrees to pay $40 of the non-residents fee. Warren Township has denied payment of services for their residents. Warren Township patrons are welcome to use the library but to checkout they must pay the non-resident fee.

Non-Residents (not living in a taxed library district) desiring a library membership card are required by state law to pay a non-resident fee based upon the per capita amount paid by real taxpayers of the library district. This fee is determined by the State of Indiana and is currently $88.00.

Public Library Access Card (PLAC) can be purchased by non-residents that are members of a public library and wish to use other Indiana libraries. The PLAC fee is established each year by the Indiana State Library and will be $65.00 for 2019.

Reciprocal Borrowing from an Indiana library requires that the patron be a real property taxpayer in a library district and a member in good standing with their home library.
