Library Open for Socially Distanced Lobby Service

Library Open for Socially Distanced Lobby Service

Due to the increase of COVID cases in Hendricks County, the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library has made the difficult decision to return to limited lobby services beginning Monday, November 30. Our hours will be Monday-Friday, 9a-6p; Saturday, 9a-2p; and Sunday, 1-5p. Executive Order 20-48 requires face coverings to enter the library. 

How do I get materials?

The library will have a limited collection in the lobby for check-out. For specific items, you can also place holds using our online catalog, the Evergreen Indiana mobile app, or call us at 317-839-6602. Please note that due to quarantine, items may not be immediately available. 

After you’ve placed your item(s) on hold, you will receive a notification when it’s ready for pickup. Once you’ve received a notification, come see us in the main lobby where we will have socially distanced check-out stations available. If you’re not comfortable coming into the lobby, please call us at 317-839-6602, and staff will bring your items out to you. 

Need materials for children? Let us gather books and resources for you! Collection Kits are available; you can fill out the form at plainfieldlibrary.net/kids/educator-resources/collection-request

Don’t forget that the online library is never closed! You can access our digital resources at plainfieldlibrary.net/digital-resources. Need a library card? Visit bit.ly/PGTPLDigitalCard to get started. 

How do I return materials?

Please return your items via the outside book drop or the temporary book drop located in the lobby. All returned items will be checked in and quarantined for seven days.
