COVID-19 Update

During Bookmobile Stops

  • All Bookmobile users over the age of two must wear a mask.
  • Please keep a minimum of six feet between yourself and others.
  • Please do not touch others’ materials.
  • We strongly encourage you to follow these other safety measures to help prevent the spread of disease.

The Bookmobile has resumed its regularly scheduled routes, with the exception of Wednesday morning stops. Given the limited space inside the Bookmobile, visitors will need to remain outside and will not be able to browse the collections.

Patrons at the three Wednesday morning stops (Meadowood, Cambridge Square, and Bell Trace) have moved to a biweekly outreach van delivery service and must be residents of those facilities to use the service.

Please request your items through the online catalog or by calling 812-349-3050 during Library phone hours. When calling, please be sure to tell staff that you want your requests to go to your Bookmobile stop. If this is your first time picking up materials at a given stop, please indicate this, along with which stop you will use. Please note that it may take 4–5 days between when you make a request and when it is available for you.

With the Bookmobile closed for browsing, we are only able to offer materials you have requested in advance. If a stop is very slow, staff may be able to check the shelves for certain items while you wait, but please do not count on this.
