What area does the Pulaski County Public Library serve?
The Pulaski County Public Library district consists of nine townships in Pulaski County: Cass, Franklin, Harrison, Indian Creek, Jefferson, Monroe, Rich Grove, Van Buren, and White Post.
There are three townships in Pulaski County that are not part of our district. Tippecanoe Township is served by the Monterey-Tippecanoe Township Public Library. Salem Township is served by the Francesville-Salem Township Public Library. Beaver Township is not a member of any library district, but it does have a contractual agreement with the Francesville-Salem Township Public Library.
Are the Monterey and Francesville libraries branches of the Pulaski County Public Library? Are you all part of the same library system?
No. Each of these is a separate library system.
I live in Tippecanoe, Salem, or Beaver Township. Why can't I get a free resident library card?
The library receives its funding in part from taxes levied on residents and property owners in its district. This is why residents of the district and owners of real property in the district are eligible for a free library card; essentially, they are already paying for library services through their taxes. Despite the name, not all residents of Pulaski County live in the Pulaski County Public Library district—Tippecanoe, Salem, and Beaver Townships are not part of our district (see above). If you do not reside or pay taxes in the Pulaski County Public Library district, you are not eligible for a free resident card.
If you are not eligible for a free resident card but would like to have access to all the services such a card provides, you may purchase a non-resident card. See the Library Cards FAQ section for more information.
