How to Get a Library Card

Who can apply for a library card?
Putnam District Library provides service to the following areas: the Village of Nashville and the townships of Assyria, Castleton, and Maple Grove. Cards are free to those who own or rent property in these townships.

How do I apply for a card?
Library card applications must be opened in person.  Proof of address and government photo ID must be provided at the time of application. If the government photo ID does not show a current mailing address, the applicant may show a utility bill, lease agreement, etc. as proof of mailing address. Parents/guardians opening accounts for youth under 18 must also do so in person and provide proof of address. Please note: the adult who opens the account is responsible for all use related to that card.

Can I get a card if I do not live in the library's service area?
Library cards for those living outside of Putnam District Library’s service district cost $35.00 per year/per card. Individuals who purchase a non-resident guest card have the same borrowing privileges as regular patrons. Students currently attending Maple Valley Schools and employees of Maple Valley Schools may apply for a free non-resident card. This must be reviewed annually and may only be used by the person to whom it is issued. The same guidelines as other non-resident cards apply.
