Get a Card
A Greenwood Public Library card can be obtained by anyone who resides or owns property in the Greenwood Public Library taxing district. (Click here for a map of the taxing district.) Those outside of the Greenwood Public Library taxing district have a few options (click here for more information about types of cards).
- Card holders in good standing at any Johnson County library can receive a free reciprocal borrower's card which gives the cardholder access to the books and services offered within our building.
- A Non-Resident card can be purchased which gives the cardholder the same access as someone living within the GPL taxing district.
- A Public Library Access Card (PLAC) can be purchased which gives the cardholder access to all of the public libraries in the state of Indiana.

Residents age 17 and under may register for a library card with a parent or guardian's signature on the library card registration form. In order to obtain a minor card, both parent and child must be present. The parent or legal guardian who signs the form is responsible for any overdue, lost, or damaged materials. If the parent or guardian has fines of $10 or above on his or her account, or is responsible for cards of other minors with fines above the fine threshold, no additional cards will be issued or renewed until all fines are paid, or fines are reduced to less than $10.
