Wait & Read
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.
The Peabody Public Library Mobile Library brings the library to you! Check out, return, or request library material at these locations. We can even issue library cards on the spot!
