Indiana's Bureau of Motor Vehicles Decision Likely to Drum Up More Library Business

(Arrows added.)

Link to January 3 Evansville (IN) Courier & Press article, "BMV move to online renewals worries social service agencies".

Excerpt:   Representatives of local charitable organizations say they worry the elderly and other groups will be inconvenienced by state officials' decision to end renewal of license plates at license branches.

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles announced this weekend that Hoosiers will now have to go online or apply by mail to obtain registration cards, stickers and plates


Amy Mangold, marketing communications director for the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library system, said local library branches have more than 200 computers the public can use to apply for various services. She said that even those who do not have library cards can pay $1 for a bar code that will let them use the terminals.

Mangold said residents often log onto the computers to apply for various services and will be able to do the same if they want to obtain a license renewal.

"The public is more than welcome to come in and use our computers for business such as that," she said
