Highland Township residents and taxpayers are eligible for a library card upon request. Proof of local address is required. Non-residents may purchase a one-year card for $100. The Highland Library also participates in the statewide MILibraryCard program.
Children may apply for a card when they can write their first and last names. Applications of children under 18 must be signed by a parent or guardian.
Your library card entitles you to borrow materials from the Highland Township Library, reciprocal member libraries of The Library Network, and other MILibraryCard libraries.
