Please before the following information carefully. When you’re ready, click “I Agree” below. You will be prompted to fill out an application which acts as a contract. Once that form is submitted, we will review your application and email your library card number within 2 business days. This card number gives you temporary access to the library’s digital resources and allows you to place holds through the online catalog. 

Card numbers issued through the online application process are active for 1 month. Visit the library with your photo ID to pick up your card and extend your privilege for 3 years. If not picked up within 1 month, your account will be deactivated until you pick up your card.

To receive your library card, you need to: 

  • Be a Carmel (Clay Township) resident.
  • Show your government-issued photo ID.
  • Show proof of your current address (if it is not listed on your current ID).

It is your responsibility to: 

  • Be financially responsible for items borrowed with this card.
  • Keep your account up to date with correct contact information.
  • Monitor the items your child selects and checks out on this card.
  • Report a lost or stolen card immediately. (You are solely responsible for items borrowed on your card until you report it lost or stolen.) 

I Agree

Note: This application is a contract and is for new cards only. If you already have a library card that needs to be renewed, please visit the library with a current ID so we can confirm that your account information is correct. If you need assistance, call us at 317.814.3936.
