Are you interested in getting a library card? In order to be eligible for a free library card you must be either:
- A Clark County resident
- A non-resident Clark County property owner with a tax receipt
- Someone with a valid library card from a library on the Indiana Statewide Reciprocal Borrowing Covenant Libraries list*
- A Floyd County resident (due to our reciprocal borrowing agreement with the New Albany – Floyd County Public Library)
If that’s you, then you can either register for a library account online now or come on down to the library and get your card now! If you sign up online you need to come to the library to pick up your card within 30 days of signing up. Whichever way you do it, make sure you bring some ID with you, such as:
- A valid State of Indiana driver’s license showing your current address; OR
- A valid State of Indiana identification card showing your current address

Library cards for children (under 18)
Kids are welcome to get library cards! If they are under age 18, a parent must be present and have a valid photo ID. Legal guardians must have a valid photo ID and proof of guardianship.
Library users, residents, and non-residents are eligible to receive a computer card which allows you to use the library computers but doesn’t allow you to check out any materials. In order to get one of these cards you need to present a valid form of photo ID. A parent or guardian with valid photo ID needs to accompany any child under the age of 18. You can read more about the different types of computer access at the library in our Computer and Internet Use Policy.
Updating your library card
You need to bring current identification with you to update your library card. You can bring either your Indiana driver’s license or Indiana ID card if they have your current address, or you can bring one item from either of the two lists above.
