Want it All?

Buy a Lake County Public Library Subscription!

(Note: If you're a resident of our district, you do not need to purchase a library subscription - your taxes have already paid for one!)

For $50 a year, anyone in Indiana can enjoy the same amazing benefits that LCPL taxpayers receive from the library.

What Does an LCPL Subscription Give Me?

An LCPL subscription - also known as a fee card - gives you exactly the same privileges that our taxpayers receive.

That means that in addition to the regular privileges we extend to everyone (like checking out items from our shelves), you also receive access to:

How Do I Subscribe?

If you already have a card with us all you need to do is walk up to a desk and hand over $50. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards. To set up an online payment instead, give us a call at 769-3541 or send us an Ask a Librarian form

If you don't already have a card with us, fill out this online registration form. Next, bring a photo ID with your current address to any LCPL location to pay. If your photo ID doesn't have your current address, bring it along with another piece of suitable identification. (Note: If you'd rather pay online, call us at 769-3541 or send us an Ask a Librarian form after you've filled out the online registration form.)

Can't I Get a Card for Free?

Well, yes! We have many types of cards depending on your needs. These cards are free:

Limited Access Cards

If you have a card with your home library district - the one you pay taxes to - you can get a Limited Access card. It's good for checking out physical items, but does not give you access to our online library.

In-House Use Cards

These are cards for people who do not want to check out materials at all. It will only let you sign up for events online, book a study room, or use our pubilc computers.

You can learn more about these types of cards on our Borrowing Privileges page.
