Public Library Access Card (PLAC)

Library Card Types

Please choose a card type from the left to learn more about it.  If you aren't sure which card type you are eligible for, or have any questions about becoming a patron of our library, please contact the Circulation Desk at any library location.


PLAC's are statewide borrowing cards and are guaranteed by Indiana law. Patrons may purchase a Public Library Access Card at any library, so long as they have a valid library card from their home library.

If a patron does not have a home library, they must first purchase a non-resident (non-taxpayer) card. A PLAC may be purchased at any library location except from the bookmobiles.

The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library card expires the same date as the PLAC. The State Library sets the price each year, effective January 1st through December 31st.

Please view the Library Fines & Fees page for the most current PLAC cost.
