    Safeguards

    We are committed to a safe, realistic, and community-oriented approach to serving you. For the safety of all, if you are feeling ill, please do not visit. Patrons and staff are required to wear a face-covering while on the premises. Children age 2 and younger are exempt. Ventilator masks are not allowed. Disposable masks are available at all locations for patrons who do not have one. Please observe physical distancing guidelines, keeping a minimum of six feet between yourself and others. View all COVID-19 safeguards and case information.

     

    Returns Processing

    All return slots are open. Materials will be quarantined for four days upon return, therefore, items will take longer to become available. Due to material quarantines, you may receive overdue notices after returning your items. Please disregard––we do not charge late fines. Material quarantines will not impact your borrowing limits.

     

    Free WiFi Access

    The Main Library and Ellettsville Branch offer free, 24-hour, high-speed WiFi access. Both locations’ WiFi coverage extends into their respective parking lots.
