Inverness residents can join either the Palatine Public Library or Barrington Area Public Library depending on the township in which they reside. However, most residents do not pay property taxes for library service since they do not reside within the boundaries of the library district. As such, they must pay for a library card. To obtain a card, you should bring your property tax bill to the respective library in the township you reside. The fee for the card will be calculated based on the amount of property tax you would pay if you lived within the library district.
