If you live, or own property, in Center or West Township in Marshall County you are eligible for a free library card at the Plymouth Public Library! Library card access is determined by townships. Residents who live in a township where they pay a library tax to support their local library are eligible for a free card. If you live in a township other than Center or West, you may be eligible for a different type of library card.
Reciprocal Cards – Reciprocal borrowing agreements are in place with all Marshall County Libraries (Argos, Bourbon, Bremen, and Culver) and several other libraries throughout Indiana.
Plymouth Public Library patrons may apply for a Reciprocal Card from libraries on the list, and patrons of the those libraries may also apply for a PPL Reciprocal Card.
PLAC – Patrons with a home library card may purchase a PLAC (Public Library Access Card) to use at any public library in Indiana. The current PLAC fee is $65 and is valid for one year from date of purchase. *Limitations on borrowing materials may apply at some libraries.
Non-Resident Cards – Libraries are a pre-paid service through taxes. Center and West Township residents pay a library tax for service. People living outside of these townships are welcome to join our library for service, but will need to help pay for the support of the library as well.
If you live in North or Polk Township, limited township funds are available to help residents obtain a PPL Non-resident Card, since library taxes are not collected in North or Polk township.
North Township residents can obtain a Non-resident Card by paying ½ of the cost of one Non-resident Card per household (Non-resident Cards are $72.00/yr) which is prepaid by the township trustee (*limited funds are available and first come first served). Additional members of the household will need to pay the full Non-resident Card fee.
Polk Township residents can obtain one Non-resident Card per household (Non-Resident cards are $72.00/yr) which is pre-paid by the township trustee (*limited funds are available and first come first served). Additional members of the household will need to pay the full Non-resident Card fee.
Any student attending, or teacher employed, in a Center or West Township school (Plymouth Community Schools, Crossroads Academy, Grace Baptist, etc.) is eligible for a FREE library card. No matter where the student/teacher lives, if they attend or are employed at a school in our service area, they are eligible for a free PPL library card.
