Grab N Go Service

All library materials are now available to you. 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, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 11 am - 3 pm.

 

Computers by Appointment

A Computers By Appointment program begins May 23rd and will be available during Grab N Go weekday hours from 4 - 7 PM on Mondays and from 11 AM - 3 PM on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Patrons will be scheduled for one hour of computer time. All computer areas will be cleaned in between appointments so there will be no extension of time. A mask will be required to enter the building and use computers. For printing, please bring exact change or money needed for printing or copying as no change will be available. Patrons will enter through the ground floor entrance shared with the museum and use the stairs or elevator to enter the library through the second-floor side door. There will be no entrance into other parts of the library. Call the library to schedule an appointment at 724-465-8841 Ext 113.

 

Text Anti-Racism and Black Life In America

The Indiana Free Library recognizes the importance of race, privilege, and black life in our community. To help our patrons, we have created an "Anti-Racism and Black Life in America" shelf on cloudLibrary. These resources have been chosen to help our community understand how to advocate for our black communities, to better understand the lives of black Americans, and to help families have conversations together. Visit our collection at yourcloudlibrary.com and look for our Featured section to find these titles. In addition and through a generous donation, the library now offers new titles in a Black Lives Matter collection. Please see the catalog for individual titles and grow your world by reading something new.

 


New Books are here!

New Books are here!

The librarians have been busy these past few weeks adding a TON of new books to the collection.  We had to take a break from getting new materials over the summer but we are making up for it now.  We are adding all of your favorite authors, bestsellers, and subjects.  Click here to see a list of all of the new items.

Building a library's collection is a job that is never finished. New books are published every day and a library’s book budget only goes so far.  The Library Wish List Program is an opportunity to support the library by adding specific, high-need items to the collection by donating an item found on the Wish List.  The Wish Lists will be updated regularly, so please check back often!

If you would like to make a donation to the Indiana Free Library, simply purchase one of the approved listed books from your favorite book retailer. If you choose to use Amazon, consider using Amazon Smile, as a small portion of your purchase will be donated to the library.  You may need to select Indiana Free Library as your non-profit on Amazon Smile.

The library would be glad to receive new or like-new hardback copies of any of these exciting new titles -- paperbacks just do not hold up well long term in a library situation.
