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.

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.

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.

 


Cruise into Kindergarten Spring 2021

Cruise into Kindergarten Spring 2021

Cruise Into Kindergarten is a program for those children aged 3-4 who are getting ready to go to school for the first time! Even if your child is in preschool, you can take part in our program and help your child learn skills they'll need at school and at home. The program includes a set of sixteen activity cards that you will need to pick up at the library. Each one has a different activity, craft, rhymes, and recommended reading for the day and range in themes such as Letters and Numbers, Doing the Laundry, and Taking a Walk, among many others. If you are interested in the program, please go into "News and Events." then to "Calendar Events." Starting on January 25th, you will see Cruise Into Kindergarten. Click on the Register Button and fill in your information. You will then be notified when you can come in and pick up your activity cards. Space is limited to 20 children, so please register quickly before all the spaces fill up! For additional info contact Val at iflkidsfun@gmail.com

Another round of Cruise into Kindergarten  starts soon! The Spring 2021 program will include not only the ideas and suggestions from the activity cards, but also new stories and crafts to go with each week's theme. Even if you followed along last winter in 2020, you can still register for this spring!! Need new activity cards? Just send me an email and I'll get them ready for you. See you soon!-Val
