Public Library Access Card (PLAC)

Questions and Answers

  • What is a Public Library Access Card (PLAC)?
  • The PLAC is a library card which allows the holder to borrow materials from any public library in the state of Indiana.
  • Who is eligible for a PLAC?
  • If you have a valid resident or non-resident library card from any public library in Indiana, you are eligible for a PLAC. You must be in good standing with the issuing library.
  • What types of materials can I check out with a PLAC?
  • Books that normally circulate at public libraries will be available for loan. Other items will be available at the discretion of each public library.
  • Must I return materials borrowed the PLAC to the location from which they came?
  • Yes. You must follow the rules of each library you use and assume responsibility for all materials you borrow. This includes paying for lost or damaged materials and overdue fines.
  • How long can I use a PLAC?
  • The PLAC expires one year from the date you apply for the card. When your PLAC expires, you can apply for another at any Indiana public library.
  • Will college students need a PLAC to use public libraries outside their home public library district?
  • Resident students are not required to have a PLAC to use the public library in the community where their college or university is located. If they choose to use a public library other than their home public library or the public library in the community where they attend school, then they may purchase a PLAC at either their home public library or the public library in their school's community.
