Indiana Library Restricts Access for Homeless

Anonymous Patron writes Northwest Indiana News: The Porter County Public Library System imposed new limitations on temporary shelter residents’ access to materials, including restricting the number of items they can check out at a time.

The new rules give temporary shelter residents library cards for three months and can only check out three items — either print or audio visual — at a time. Juveniles age 17 or younger will no longer be able to receive a library card.”
