   I Love My Library
  • I need the library for research using the periodicals to the Internet.-Xavier, 14
  • I love the Children’s Programs, especially the American Girl Tea Party and The Polar Express-Addison. Age 9
  • As a Military family, the library is the first place I visit to gather information on the town’s contacts and locations for everything from daycare to dentists. The GAPL has welcomed our family that first day and we have never stopped coming to the library. What a great place to be!-Jane Coburn, Former Board Member
  • No matter how busy our life gets, we always find time for the library-Meredith, Felicity, Ainsley and Emory Anderson

  • Libraries do so much more now in many different ways. As a family of four generations of library users, we are able to: check out books, movies, audio tapes; download e-books – free of charge; do research on the computers, and enjoy a wide range of programs for all ages.-The Kiser Family: Doris, Fred, Jodi, Sean

  • I love my library because books are an adventure waiting to happen. Reading can take you to new heights and test all of your emotions in just one chapter. Anything is possible when you read.-Betsy Fischer Book Club Member

Resident Library Cards:

Residents of -- or those who pay property tax in -- Greenville Borough, Hempfield Township, and Sugar Grove Township are eligible for a free library card upon presentation of appropriate identification and filling out a Library Card Application. Identification should be in the form of an official picture ID that has the current address. If photo ID is not available, two (2) other forms of ID that have the correct address can be used (check book, utility bill, pay stub, etc.). If the address on the photo ID is incorrect, an additional form of ID that has the correct address must be shown as well. If the primary residence is not in one of the named townships, a tax bill showing the address of the taxed property must be presented along with photo ID to obtain a card.

Patrons under the age of 18 must have a signature of a parent or guardian to obtain a library card.

Non-Resident Library Cards:

Non-residents can pay a $15/year fee to obtain a card. The rules for appropriate identification are the same as those for resident cards.

Non-residents whose home library participates in AccessPA can get a free Greenville Area Public Library card upon showing their library card with the AccessPA logo, providing appropriate identification, and completing a Library Card Application.

All residents of Mercer, Lawrence, Butler and Armstrong counties are also eligible for a free card at the New Castle Public Library District Center, whether or not they meet our residency requirements.

Summer Cards:

Non-residents can obtain a Summer Card that is valid from Memorial Day until Labor Day. The cost of the Summer Card is $5.00.

Lost Cards:

A $2.00 fee will be charged for replacement of lost cards.

Probationary period:

New patrons cannot request Interlibrary loans and will be restricted to five items and one dvd/bluray for their first check-out.


The Library asks for an email address as an additional way to maintain contact with its patrons. This email may be used to contact patrons regarding overdue books, holds, Interlibrary Loan availability or other Library business. Occasionally, the email address may also be used by the Friends of the Library, for Library fundraising purposes, or for dissemination of information in a newsletter. If you provide an email address and do not wish to receive those communications, you can opt out of the additional communication but your email address may still be used for internal Library business.

Limited Access:

Patrons who have a history of damaged or lost items will be placed in patron type `Limited Access.` Such patrons will only be able to check out five books and one dvd/bluray at a time. Patrons will be informed by letter from the director of their status change. This status will remain for a minimum of six months, at which time the patron can petition the director for a change of status. If items are lost or damaged within that six month period, the status will remain as `Limited Access.'

FEE AREAS: What You Can Do
Lobby your township supervisors or borough council to make a yearly contribution to Greenville Area Public Library.  This would ensure that all residents of your community would have free access to our books, videotapes, audiotapes, periodicals, programs and computer services.
