Computers and Devices on a Desk

While our services and locations are impacted by COVID-19, we will continue to provide access to information, ideas, and experiences as much as possible through our online services. If using them is new for you we are here to help!

It is always our mission and privilege to help you discover new things to read and learn. We look forward to helping you level up your library card by learning how to use all of the digital services available to you at home.

We have staff available to help you with e-book reading suggestions, questions, and reference help. Need help? Call or ask a Library staff member at any of our locations or text a librarian at 317 333-6877.

"Checking Out" Items and Streaming Content

Your IndyPL Library card gives you free access to e-books, music, movies, audiobooks, online courses and more. You can read or listen to books on most mobile devices or your computer.

We partner with several different platforms to provide these services the same way you might subscribe to more than one movie streaming platform (Netflix, Hulu, Disney+) at home.

To see all of our digital collections, go to our e-Books & Streaming page. On that page each service has its own tile to tell you details like loan limits and provide links to each service's website or app. Video tutorials are available for each one.

Some of the services will simply ask you to enter your library card number. Others will require you to set up an account. Either way, your library card number is your ticket to get access. If you do not have an IndyPL library card or need to renew your card, you may be able to apply or renew online.

To assist you, we have created these pages to help you get started:
