Monday - Friday 10 am - 6 pm, Saturday 10 am - 3 pm, Sunday CLOSED *Computers shut down 15 minutes before closing each day.
We have two different areas to drop off materials for after closing. This is to help eliminate damage to our items. We have a night drop box out in front of our facility to place all hardcover books in the box if were closed. We also have a metal slot in our front door for movies, music cds, and paperback books. PLEASE NOTE, IF WE ARE OPEN PLEASE COME INSIDE TO RETURN BOOKS AND MOVIES. We retrieve our drop box items every morning (Monday-Saturday) between 9 am and 10 am. If you drop your books off after we open, please note they will not be retrieved until the following business day.
Residents of Indiana presenting Proper Identification such as a valid Indiana Driver’s License which displays a current address; a valid Indiana State ID which displays a current address; a current government issued photo ID (e.g.m military ID, passport); or a bank statement or utility bill that establishes that the individual resides in or pays real property taxes on a property owned in the library’s service area (the “library district”) are eligible to receive a green Evergreen Indiana “resident” library card, which is used at the Tyson Library. Bring your proof of residence with you to the check out desk at the library and an adult library staff person will help you get signed up for your card.
In order to obtain a card from Tyson Library you must live within Tyson Library’s district of Johnson township or the townships of Brown, Shelby and Otter Creek for which the library has a service agreement. Click here to enter your address to see your home library!
Yes, you can. First, though, you should know that if you have a current and valid Evergreen Indiana library card with another library, your card may be used at our library to borrow materials. If you are not a resident of another Evergreen Indiana library district, but you have a valid library card from another Indiana public library that is not in the Evergreen Indiana system, you have two options: Purchase a Public Library Access Card (PLAC) for an annual fee. This PLAC is good at any public library in Indiana; OR Purchase a Non-Resident card at our library, or at another Evergreen Indiana library, for an annual fee. This fee varies at different libraries, based on a formula established by Indiana Library Law. You should contact libraries in your area to see which option will work best for you. NOTE: Option 2 also applies to anyone who lives in or owns property in an area of Indiana that is unserved by any public library.
For your own protection, we strongly recommend that you present your library card every time you check out materials. However, if you do not have your library card with you, you may checkout items by showing a valid photo ID at the Circulation Desk.
If your library card is lost or stolen, you can purchase a replacement card at the Circulation Desk. Replacement cards are $2 per card.
Each public library purchases subscriptions to its own databases with funds in our budget. The databases to which the Tyson Library subscribes can be accessed by anyone from within the library building. However, remote online access to those databases is restricted to the people from our library district.

We do not have a notary on staff here at the library. Most local banks have a notary on staff and can tell you if there is one available by calling their number.
