The Harvard Diggins Library is a municipal library funded by property taxes collected on all residences within the city limits of the City of Harvard or by annual fees collected from non-residents outside of the city limits who wish to use the library.  A Harvard Diggins Library card is your ticket to all of the resources available in the library and at over 130 area libraries!  Residents of Harvard, ages 6 and up (ages 6-15 with parental signature) and non-residents can obtain a library card.  How can you get a card?   Click here!
