PCPL Receives Indiana Humanities Grant

Funding has been provided to Pulaski County Public Library from Indiana Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.  This funding will provide payroll relief toward the adversely affected library budget, which has been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Employee Health and Safety Procedures - Phase Two (Employees Only in the Building)

The health and safety of PCPL’s employees is a top priority. PCPL will phase in library services to ensure adherence to all federal, state, and local health recommendations. To protect the health of the individual employees and the public, the following mitigation strategies have been designed. Community mitigation activities are actions that people and communities can take to slow the spread of infectious diseases. Community mitigation is especially important before a vaccine or drug becomes widely available.

Curbside Delivery Resumes

As of today (Monday, May 4th), we are restarting our curbside delivery service.

With curbside delivery, you can reserve items by phone (946-3432) or online (https://catalog.pulaskicounty.lib.in.us/WebOpac/).  We’ll gather your items and let you know when they’re available.

Item pickup will be available Monday-Friday 10:00-6:00 and Saturday 10:00-2:00.  Park in one of the handicap parking spaces in the front of the building and call us to let us know you're here.

Filing for Unemployment

The library has set up a computer at the Community Development Commission Office in the Winamac town complex for use by community members who need to file for unemployment benefits.

Even though the library building is currently closed, we want to ensure that members of the public still have access to the resources they need.
