Magazine Form

Qualifying, Original Signature

All applications must have a qualifying signature and a Librarian may sign the application. Those patrons with reading disabilities must have a medical doctor sign their application. The signature must be the original signature, therefore, the signed application must be mailed in and not faxed or sent by other electronic means.

Send Your Application

Completed applications (containing also the qualified signature) and the magazine preference form should be mailed to:

  Special Services Division
  Indiana State Library
  140 North Senate Avenue
  Indianapolis, IN 46204

Because the program requires an original signature, please do not fax or send a photocopy of the completed application.

If you have questions about the application, please contact:
