Those who reside or own property in Pleasant and York townships are eligible for a library card. A portion of these residents’ property taxes support the library, so their cards are available at no additional cost.
Those living outside of these two townships may purchase a library card for an annual cost of $75.00 per family or $45 for an individual. Patrons do not need a library card to use the library, only to check out materials.
Public Library Access Cards are available to any Indiana resident with a current, valid library card from any Indiana public library. This provides access to all Indiana public libraries, although individual libraries are free to limit what materials may be checked out with a PLAC card.
