Please note that in order for your application to go through successfully, you may be asked to allow the form to track your current location. When prompted with a message such as "go.decaturlibrary.org wants to track your physical location," you must click on "allow once."

In order for your application to be successfully completed, your address must be verified. In 1-5 days you will receive a followup postcard to verify your address. If the postcard is returned to us for any reason the card will be suspended.
