Library cards offer so much more than the ability to check out books! Our collection also includes movies, magazines, audiobooks, games, and music. Our "green" cards can be used at other Evergreen Indiana libraries all over the state. Or use interlibrary loans to check out materials without traveling. Many of our online resources are only available to card-carrying members—including thousands of additional titles in digital format, software for studying language and music, and the ability to research genealogy or look up car repair instructions from home. With the incentives we offer this month, there is no better time to get a library card. So stop by soon to get yours!
We would like your help in determining new items for circulation at Peabody Public Library. Please take a moment to give us your opinion here as to which items would be desirable for check-out.
