INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Having all this time at home might have you wishing you had a good book to help you pass the time.
The Indianapolis Public Library is hoping to help by increasing the amount of available eBooks and eAudiobooks.
“We have spent many years building an awesome library of the best in eBooks, eAudiobooks, streaming video, digital magazines, and online courses that are ideal for using at home during this unfortunate period,” said Deb Lambert, IndyPL’s Director of Collection Management. “We’ll continue to add to the collection during the entire time the Library is closed, which will make a noticeable difference for many of our patrons.”
In addition to children’s eMaterials on such platforms as Axis 360, TumbleBooks, Kanopy, and OverDrive/Libby, parents and caregivers can visit the Library’s wide-ranging blog for a variety of topics.
Library staff will be available daily to offer reading suggestions and reference help at 317-275-4184, via text at 317-333-6877, or through the contact link on the Library’s website.
Any physical items that are or become overdue will have due dates extended until the Library reopens.
