To obtain a library card, either request an application in person at the library or download, print, and fill out a Patron Card Application. Bring the application along with proof of address to the Circulation Desk at any branch. The library accepts an Indiana Driver's License or ID, utility or phone bill, personalized check, or any mail that is no more than 30 days old. A parent or legal guardian must sign the application for children under the age of 16. They also have the option of giving them permission to check out videos and DVDs. You will receive your card in the mail in approximately 7–10 days. Library cards are non-transferable. I understand that this card can only be used by the applicant.
