Hancock County Residents

You must be eighteen years of age to apply for a library card. When you fill out an application, you’ll need to provide some form of personal identification that proves you are one of the following within Hancock County:

  • a resident
  • a property owner
  • an employee
  • a student

Those under seventeen years of age may be issued a library card only if a parent or legal guardian establishes identification, acquires their own library card, and guarantees responsibility for materials borrowed on the juvenile’s card.

Out-0f-County Residents

Non-local residents may also apply for a library card, however there is an annual $15 out-of-county fee (discounted to $5 for senior citizens).
