Reciprocal Borrower Agreements
The Greensburg – Decatur County Public Library currently holds three reciprocal borrowing agreements with area libraries. These agreements are with the Bartholomew County Public Library, Fayette County Public Library, and the Rushville Public Library. Reciprocal borrower agreements allow patrons from our library to get a card at either of these participating libraries and vice versa.
To qualify for a reciprocal borrower card, patrons will need:
- A valid library card from their ‘home’ library, and
- A photo ID with current address, or a piece of mail which verifies the address
These cards are good for one year from date of issue. They must be renewed annually.
There are a few restrictions placed on reciprocal borrower cards. Patrons with reciprocal borrower cards will not have access to:
- The full Evergreen Indiana consortium, only the Greensburg – Decatur County Public Library system
- Overdrive – eIndiana Digital Consortium (this is the service which supplies eBooks and downloadable audiobooks)
Patrons who are interested in access to Overdrive or the full Evergreen Indiana Consortium, must purchase a non-resident card
