If you've never taken a look at our Online Resources page, you might be surprised at what all we have to offer. We have resources for the young and old and everyone in between, including genealogists, mechanics, new drivers, new readers, and anyone studying a new language. While a few of these tools are only available within the library, many can be accessed from home, with your green PPL library card.
The main entrance to the library is back in use, but please continue to use extra caution during road construction.
A new online resource is available for kids who come to the library. ABCmouse.com is an award-winning online curriculum for young children, from Age of Learning, Inc., and it is free at our library. Simply use one of the links provided on our website. (Note: the links will be permanently available on our Online Resources page and on our Children's Fun and Exploration page.)
Attention, Whitley county students, parents, and teachers! Now is the time to start forming teams for Battle of the Books! Teams are made up of 4 to 6 students in the same grade level group who love to read and compete. For more information, click here.
