How to get a Library Card
Anyone permanently residing within Hancock County is eligible for a free library card! Bring a proof of address, such as a driver’s license or recent utility bill, to either HCPL location. If you live in Vernon Township, you will need to bring in your Fortville library card.
All ages are eligible for a card. An adult card is for persons 18 years of age and older. Juvenile cards are for persons younger than 18. Applicants 12 and under require the signature and valid identification of a parent/guardian. Teens ages 13-17 who show a valid ID may apply for a card without a parent/guardian present.
To protect our patrons, no one may use anyone else’s card, even members of the same family.
