Getting a Library Card

To register for a library card from the Morrisson-Reeves Library, a patron must live in the library-taxing district, which includes Abington, Boston, Clay, Dalton, Franklin, Green, Harrison, New Garden, Perry, Wayne and Webster Townships. Applicants must provide current, valid photo identification and proof of residency. Photo Identification should be government issued, typically a Driver License or state issued ID.

Young Adults and Students may use their school-issued photo identification to establish residency.

A Public Library Access Card (PLAC) can be purchased at MRL to use at any Indiana public library. Contact the library for further details.
