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 from Colleen Kennedy-Carpat, 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.

 

Finding Credible Covid-19 Vaccine Information

Before considering vaccine information on the Internet, check that the information comes from a credible source and is updated on a regular basis.  Visit the CDC's website for more information.

VaccinatePA is a volunteer team calling hospitals and pharmacies to identify which facilities are currently administering vaccines. This website will be updated daily to reflect the latest information we are able to gather.


IFL American History Book Club Meeting

Just to let you all know, we will have two special guests at our American History Book Club meeting on Zoom on March 23rd at 11 AM. Ms. Andrea Keller and her docent, Dianne from Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex will sit in on our discussion of the book, "The Moundbuilders," by George R. Milner.

Ms. Keller is the Cultural Program Coordinator at the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex. She is an archaeologist and has worked in this particular field. Ms. Keller now works as the educator at the facility.

This particular meeting is open to all those interested as it surely will be an enlightening and enjoyable discussion of early American culture and a nearby historical site.

We will meet on Zoom at 11 AM on March 23rd. If you need a copy of the title to prepare yourself for this wonderful opportunity to discuss the book, Grave Creek Mound, or moundbuilding culture in general, there are several at the library for checkout using our GrabNGo service at iflgrango@indianafreelibrary.org or 724-465-8841 and follow the prompts. Remember to ask for the book: The Moundbuilders and it is the current American History title we are reading.

If you aren't a regular member and need an invite to the Zoom meeting, please email me (VAL) at iflkidsfun@gmail.com at least a day before the meeting and I will send you an invite the morning of our discussion.

We look forward to seeing you there and most certainly, we will have a lively discussion!
