How do I get a Library Card?

Answer - Come in person to the Front Desk and bring proof of your current address, such as Driver's License, utility bill or other "Proof of Residency" identification. We will make a card for you. There is no cost if you live within the Indiana School District. There is a $25.00 annual membership fee for those living outside the Indiana School District. Replacement cards may be purchased for .50 cents. If you have a current card with an AccessPA sticker from your home library, in another service area, an IFL card can be issued to you for FREE with Proof of Address. See details below:

 

Library Cards and Membership

Residents of the Indiana School District

Library cards are free to residents of Indiana Borough, White Township, Shelocta Borough, and Armstrong Township (Indiana Area School District).

Membership application cards are available at the circulation desk. All applicants must present proof of their current address to receive a library card. Post office box numbers are not valid proof of address, because they do not indicate the municipality of the residence. Acceptable proof od address can be Driver's License, peice of mail, lease, utility bill, or other valid forms of ID. Patrons will be asked to verify date of birth to maintain account security online. Upon proof of address the library card application is processed.

Under 18

Applicants who are under 18 years of age must have their application cards signed by a legal parent or guardian. This parent/quardian will be responsible for all fines, lost materials and fees due to the library. Parent cards are linked to children's cards for identification. Parents will be asked to show a photo ID such as a Driver's License for verification and birthdate.

IUP students

IUP resident students may receive a free library card if they live on campus or in our service area. Students must provide a valid IUP ID as well asa proof of their address within the Indiana School District. Non-resident students may use a reciprocal Access PA card fropm their home library for a free card for the Indiana Free Library. Students from unserved areas will be assessed an annual fee of twenty-five ($25.00) dollars.

Beyond service areas

Applicants who live outside the library's service area must pay an annual fee of twenty-five ($25.00) dollars at the time the card is issued. The fee is waived if the patron owns property within the service area and provides proof (e.g. tax receipt). Applicants holding a current library card from another library may also be eligible for a free library card if their original card has a blue Access PA insignia. These patrons must also provide proof of address as well as a valid, current library card from their home library.

Special Memberships

Organizations/businesses within the service area are eligible for free memberships. A letter from the director/president/owner of the organization must be presented, in which the institution takes full responsibility for any fines, lost material or fees accrued on the card. Appropriate use by members of the organization is at the discretion of the Director.

Temporary Library Cards

A three-month temporary card may be issued for the cost of $10. The Temporary Card allows a patron to have up to ten checked-out items at any one time, up to ten holds, and access to online library resources. Within 30 days of the end of the three-month period, a card may be purchased for an additional 9-month period with full privileges for the cost of $15. All items not returned after the three-month period may result in the account being sent to a collection agency.
