Discover Indiana libraries this year with Passport program

From outdoor library gardens, to gem collections, to the largest public genealogy library in the nation, Indiana libraries showcase many unique learning opportunities.

Between now and July 29, 2023, Hoosiers are invited to discover the wealth of knowledge that can be found at Indiana libraries with a fun guide:  the Indiana Library Passport.

This passport features over 60 main libraries and branches to explore, including 31 historical Carnegie libraries. Jasper County Public Library is among the destinations.

When participants check in to these libraries using the passport website on their mobile device, they will be entered into a quarterly drawing for a prize package. These prizes may include historical tour tickets, architecture books, and gift cards from local and national merchants such as restaurants and more. What's better than visiting libraries and winning prizes?

This program is 100% free, however a gate fee will apply to visit the library at the Museum of 20th Century Warfare in Fort Harrison State Park in Marion County. All prizes are while supplies last.

Signing up

The Indiana Library Passport is free to use for everyone. Sign up for the passport by scanning the QR code or visiting the Indiana Library Passport website: Once signed up, follow the instructions to add the passport to the home screen of your phone. No app necessary! The website offers a map of locations as well as descriptions about each of the participating libraries so you can plan your visits.

You must be within 0.25 miles of the library for check in at a location. After redemption, the location will be greyed out until a week has passed. You’ll be able to check in again at each location a week later for more entries into the prize drawing.

That’s it! Have fun visiting libraries across the Hoosier state!
