System-wide Services

All our locations and website are ADA compliant. We offer large type books, audiobooks on CD, audio-described DVDs, closed caption DVDs, electronic books, and audiobooks for checkout. These materials can be requested for pick-up at any IndyPL location. All public computers feature Windows Magnifier.

Services for Homebound Library Users

Library Express matches screened volunteers with Library users who are unable to visit their local Library branches due to physical/medical limitations. The assigned volunteer delivers Library materials to homebound users on a regular basis as part of an ongoing service. This service is free and is open to all qualified Marion County residents. For information, please call Volunteer Services.
