Rockville Public Library clarifies library card policy


News Release

ROCKVILLE — Because of the recent expansion of the Rockville Public Library’s service area, any resident or property owner in Parke County — except those served by the Montezuma Library — may have a Rockville Public Library card.

Those wishing to obtain a card should bring verification of current address (utility bill, bank statement, etc.), a contact telephone number and photo identification with them on their next visit to the library at 106 N. Market St. A card entitles patrons to check out books, ebooks, DVD movies and video games. Patrons may also use their card to obtain reciprocal cards that may be used to check out materials at participating libraries. The Rockville Library has reciprocal arrangements with other public libraries throughout Indiana through the Statewide Reciprocal Borrowing Covenant. Those libraries include Montezuma, Clinton, Putnam County, Covington, Kingman, Brazil, Darlington, Crawfordsville, Ladoga, Waveland, Vigo County and Williamsport-Washington Township public libraries. Each library issues its own reciprocal card; for a statewide list see www.in.gov/library/files/RBCOVENANTS01312011.xls.
