PCPL Coronavirus Response

UPDATE 4-3-20:  Even though the library is closed, we are still working for you!

Read more to learn about what we're doing and to find links to information about taxes, unemployment, and more.

Indiana's Stay-at-Home order has been extended through April 20th.  The library will remain closed for the duration of this order.

Staff members have been reaching out to regular library patrons, participating in virtual training sessions, and putting together always-accessible digital resources.

Voting in Indiana's 2020 Primary Election

Indiana's primary, which had been scheduled for May 5th, has been rescheduled to June 2nd.  Read more to learn about how you can vote by mail, where to go on election day, and more.

Would you prefer to vote by mail rather than in-person this year?  Good news!  For the upcoming primary, you can choose to vote by mail without having to give a specific reason.  And now, requesting a mail-in ballot is even easier – you can just send a message to the Pulaski County Clerk's office on Facebook.

Due Dates Extended

Don't worry about things like overdue books right now!  Library materials do not need to be returned until we resume our normal level of library service.

Any physical materials currently checked out will have their due dates extended until the end of our elevated response to the coronavirus.  Right now this is set for May 1st, although this may be extended as the coronavirus situation evolves.

Our book drops are currently closed, as construction is taking place in those locations.  Please hold on to your materials for the time being.

Library Events Suspended

All upcoming in-person events at the library have been suspended as part of our response to the current coronavirus outbreak.

Regular recurring programs will resume once the library returns to standard services.  We will do our best to reschedule canceled events as circumstances allow.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our website – we'll let you know when regular library programs resume.

Children at the Library

Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver aged 18 or older when visiting the library during our elevated response to the coronavirus outbreak.

We enjoy having children at the library and believe that the library is a great place for kids to learn, play, and grow.  The decision to limit library visits by unattended children was a difficult one and was not taken lightly.

Curbside Delivery

The library building may be closed, but we’re still working for you!  On Tuesday, March 17, we're starting a new service: curbside delivery.

If you’d like certain books, movies, magazines, etc., reserve them online at, or give us a call at 946-3432.  We’ll be here during regular library hours to take your calls.

PCPL Coronavirus Preparedness

The library is currently monitoring the development of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Indiana. We take the safety of our community very seriously. We have been in communication with the Pulaski County Health Department and are monitoring daily updates from the Indiana Department of Health and the CDC.
