Reciprocal Borrowing

Pendleton Community Library - Madison County
The Fortville Library has a reciprocal borrowing agreement with the Pendleton Library.  Those living in the Pendleton Library's jurisdiction must acquire a library card with them first before one may obtain a library card with us.

Hancock County Public Library - Greenfield
The Fortville Library was established in 1918 to serve the people of Vernon Township. We are not a part of the Hancock County Library.  However, any Hancock County Library patron may come and use our library so long as the patron has established a card with the Hancock County Library first.
