Getting a library card
A person must be at least six years old to receive a library card. A parent/guardian must accompany a juvenile or teen patron, show a valid ID, and sign the membership card. Adults must show a valid ID and fill out a membership card to receive a Library card.
Each patron will be assigned a Library card number that will serve as their patron User ID. This will allow the patron to access their Library account from our website: www.fairmountlibrary.net.
The password for their Library account will be the patron’s last name, all in small letters.
The Fairmount Public Library District is composed of the Town of Fairmount; Town of Fowlerton; and Fairmount Township. These areas support the library funds by being assessed a library fee through their property tax bills.
Contractual services are offered to residents in Liberty Township, as of 2008. Residents living in Green Township (Grant County) are considered Non-Residents.
Citizens living in Elwood, Summittville (both in Madison County), Swayzee, and Upland may also be granted Fairmount Public Library cards upon showing a valid ID and their current home library card. This is made possible through a Reciprocal Borrowing agreement with the Grant and Madison Country libraries.
