GREENFIELD —A merger of Hancock County’s two library systems is coming to the forefront again, this time with the approval of a new three-year strategic plan for the Hancock County Public Library.
The HCPL serves every township except Vernon Township. A merger with the Fortville-Vernon Township Library was raised in a 2010 financial study for the county library, and again last year through a capital improvement plan. HCPL officials say a merger – which could include opening a new branch in McCordsville – could still be several years and a lot of negotiating away.
