Curbside service

The library will begin curbside service on Monday, May 11. Patrons may place items on hold through the Evergreen catalog.  You can also call (317-839-6602) or email to place a hold if you’re not comfortable with the catalog. Once your hold is ready, library staff will call and arrange a pickup time!

The outside drop box will also be opened on May 11; you may begin returning your items at the drop box then, but don’t be in a hurry! All items you have out have been extended until July 1.

We will also offer curbside document services – faxing, scanning to email, copying. Look for more details on these services soon.

Construction

Aside from the pandemic, which has necessitated changes in procedures and access around the library, there’s still quite a bit of construction happening around the building! Meeting rooms are not yet ready for occupancy, finishing touches are being added to the public restrooms, and a large portion of the quiet study area is still being updated.



We are reopening on Monday, May 18 with reduced hours and limited access to the building. Read details here. You can continue to access our digital collections here. As always, if you have questions, send us an email!
