Evergreen Library Cards

Anyone, regardless of residency, may come to the Centerville Public Library. A library card is required only if you wish to check out materials to take with you.

Centerville Public Library is a member of Evergreen Indiana, a network of more than 100 Indiana libraries. If you are a resident of Center Township, the library card you obtain at Centerville is an Evergreen card and it may be used at any Evergreen library.

Children 5 years of age and older may obtain their own card. Materials for children age 4 and younger may be checked out on the card of a parent or legal guardian.

Applications must be filled out and signed in person at the library.

Center Township Residents

Bring a government-issued photo ID. If your ID does not show your current address, also bring a utility bill, tax receipt or bank statement that has your current address. Anyone 17 and younger does not need to have ID, but the parent or legal guardian signing for them must show ID.

Non-Center Township Residents

Residents of Wayne County who live in these townships – Abington, Boston, Clay, Dalton, Franklin, Green, Harrison, New Garden, Perry, Wayne and Webster – may obtain a reciprocal-borrower library card at Centerville after first obtaining a card at Morrisson-Reeves Library in Richmond. This reciprocal-borrower card may be used at Centerville but not other Evergreen libraries.

Cambridge City Library (Jackson and Washington Townships), Hagerstown Library (Jefferson Township) and Dublin Library are part of the Evergreen network. Residents of those townships need to get their Evergreen card from their home library, but that same card will work at Centerville.

Indiana residents who live outside of Wayne County, and who don’t live where there is an Evergreen library, may obtain a Centerville card if their home library is part of the state reciprocal agreement. This reciprocal-borrower card may be used at Centerville but not other Evergreen libraries.

Renew an Existing Card

Library card accounts must be updated every two years for residents and every year for reciprocal borrowers. To renew your library card, please visit the library and present a valid photo ID (as well as proof of residency if your address has changed), and we will renew your account at no cost.

Replace a Lost Library Card

A replacement Evergreen card may be obtained for a $2.00 fee. It is not necessary to bring proof of residency again, unless your account has expired.
