How To Get a Library Card

To obtain a library card, you must meet two qualifications:

  1. You must reside in a served township in Carroll County, one whose taxes support the library.
  2. You must provide some proof of your address in that township. (A current driver's license or a piece of mail sent to you at your current address are two good examples.)

Served townships Include Adams, Deer Creek, Jefferson, and Rock Creek. Residents of Jackson and Monroe townships must first obtain a library card from their public library in Camden or Flora. Residents of Burlington, Clay, Carrollton, Democrat, Liberty, Madison, Tippecanoe, and Washington townships, which are townships in which the library is not supported by taxes, may obtain a library card after paying a $105 annual fee.

If you are under 18 years of age, your parent must sign for your library card, agreeing to be responsible for materials borrowed on your card.

Public Library Access Cards area available for $65 and allow you to extend the use of your local card to all public libraries in the state of Indiana. If you live in a township which does not receive library service, however, you must first purchase a local card.

If you live in an unserved township, you may apply to the Psi Iota Xi sorority for assistance in paying for your card. You can pick up an application form at the library or here.
