As a public library in the State of Indiana, NMPL receives funding through property taxes paid within the North Manchester city limits. Those who live or own property inside the taxing district pay for a library card whether they ever register for one or not. However, with non-resident cards, the choice to purchase a library card is in the patron’s hands. Non-resident fees are dictated by the State, reviewed annually by the library board, and kept as low as possible.
“We understand if $102 for a library card seems expensive,” says Diane Randall, Library Director. “But remember that a library card provides so much educational, entertainment, and leisure value through access to the tens of thousands of items in our collection that includes books, magazines, microfilms, large print books, newspapers, selected government materials of local and historical interest, audiobooks, music, DVDs, databases, and more. In addition to all of these resources, a library card also enables access to NMPL’s two wonderful e-libraries (Libby and Hoopla), and allows patrons to check out items from our Homeschool-2-Go and Sensory-2-Go centers.”
Patrons interested in signing up for a library card can do so by visiting the library with proof of address, such as a recent piece of mail, utility bill or current driver's license.
The mission of the North Manchester Public Library is to provide materials, programs, and services necessary to meet the recreational and educational needs of the community in a comfortable and easily-accessible facility, which is a community center of activity and information.
