Public Service Policies Manual


The Library is a place that belongs to everyone. The Hamilton East Public Library Board establishes policies to assure the safety of users and staff, to protect the Library resources and facilities from damage, and to guide behaviors in order to provide unimpeded use of the library and normal staff functions without conflicts to the mission of the library.



The mission of the Hamilton East Public Library is to enrich our diverse communities by providing the best educational, informational, and recreational resources possible.



The Hamilton East Public Library levies taxes within the area composed of Delaware, Fall Creek, Noblesville and Wayne townships of Hamilton County, Indiana. This includes the incorporated Town of Fishers and City of Noblesville. Persons residing in or paying property taxes for property located within the library district shall be the primary target for services of the Library and shall not be charged for a library card or for most basic library services.
