Grab N Go Service

The service begins May 27th. IFL will take orders by phone 724-465-8841 Ext 0 or email at IFLGrabNGo@indianafreelibrary.org for up to 5 items. Library materials will be bagged and available for pick-up. You will get a call when the books are ready and schedule your pick-up time at the ground floor entrance. We ask that only one person may be in the entrance for safety. You will find your materials bagged and labeled just to the right of the door in the entranceway to Grab N Go. All materials can be returned in the Book Drop at the same entrance. They will be wiped down and quarantined in a separate area and not checked in for awhile No fines are taken at this time. The library will be quarantining materials after return for a minimum of five days {72 hours is the suggested time for plastic surfaces] before checking in and returning to the shelves. Our goal is to keep you safe while you can again enjoy your favorite reads. Thank you for your patience.

Hours are Monday 4 - 7 PM, Wednesday 11 am - 3 pm, and Saturday from 11 am - 3 pm.

NEWS

If you want to be in the know about what’s going on at our organization, you’ve come to the right place.

Due to the Coronavirus, the library is serving our community through online programs and services for safety during closure on the building to patrons. We will open on May 27th with a Grab N Go service for the distribution of library material only. You will be able to call in or email requests for books and other materials and pick them up at the ground floor entrance to the building. We will package your pick-up, with a limit of 5 items, in labeled plastic bags on shelves inside the entrance door. We ask that only ONE person-at-a-time be in the entrance area for safe distancing. Hours for pick-ups: Monday 4 PM - 7 PM, Wednesdays 11 AM - 3 PM, Saturday 11 AM - 3 PM. This will continue until the Green status allows for group gatherings or better safety for our community. NO Interlibrary Loan requests are being taken at this time.

Giving Tuesday

The library had just launched an Owl Campaign before the time of closure. We continue our Owl Campaign on Facebook for Giving Tuesday and beyond. We know that libraries are a place where people gather, meet & greet, and enjoy interactions that build community. During this pandemic is not a time to provide that interaction. We support our community in every way possible during this time through our safe online offerings and hope to soon be able to offer complete services again. Will you help us sustain until then by purchasing an owl and keeping us going. Thank you for knowing how much that means!
