About the Library

The Library offers opportunities to read, learn, connect, and create, providing a variety of services at no charge. Anyone is welcome to visit to browse materials, use public computers, attend free programs, and enjoy our spaces.

Additionally, a free library card allows Monroe County residents to:

  • Borrow physical materials, such as books, audiobooks, playaways, DVDs, video games, CDs, magazines, toys, zines, book club kits, and items from our Library of Things!
  • Use the eLibrary to access eBooks, music, eaudiobooks, movies & TV, magazines & newspapers, learning opportunities, DIY, curated research materials, local & family history, and much more
  • Reserve spaces, such as meeting rooms, study rooms, video and audio production studios, the auditorium, and art exhibit spaces

Our locations include the Downtown Library in Bloomington, and a branch in Ellettsville, along with extensive outreach services. A Southwest branch is planned for 2022.
