Our Outreach Services extend the library’s resources and programs to the community through various efforts.
The Peabody Public Library Mobile Lab brings the library to you! Check out, return, or request library material at these locations. We can even issue library cards on the spot!
Technology Trainer Beth Gaff takes technology outside the library on a regular basis. She can be found at Brew'ha and McDonalds weekly, and also holds monthly classes at the Senior Center and Grace Lutheran Church.

Each week we maintain a quantity of books at several business locations within Columbia City. These locations include Bowen Center, BrewHa, Dr. Hatcher's office, House of Style, Parkview Whitley Hospital (main lobby), Quality Inn, Senior Center, Shear Envy, Super 8 Hotel, the Whitley County Courthouse (third floor waiting area), and the Whitley County Jail. The books are available to anyone who visits these businesses, with no restrictions on return.
Every six weeks Peabody Public Library delivers bulk quantities of books to four assisted living centers in Whitley County: Blue River Senior Citizens Apartments, Clugston on the Square, Oak Pointe and Sycamore Village.
Each Thursday, weather permitting, we deliver materials to patrons who are unable to visit the library. If you would like to be included in this program, please call Peabody Public Library at 260-244-5541. A valid Peabody Public Library Evergreen card is required in order to enroll in this program.
