There are a few spaces available to read to the dogs. If you are interested in reading to a friendly therapy pet, please contact the children's department of the library.

Registration is required by Friday, February 15, at 5:00.

The Library is now automatically renewing your items that are overdue, provided there are no holds or you've used up you maximum number of renewals.

Of course, if you have any questions about your items, please call us @ 765.743.2261. And, remember, we no longer charge late fees!


We ask for your patience during the months of January and February as we adapt our Payless West book drop to the winter storms that our city is experiencing.


If you find the Payless Drop Box full, please use the dropbox found at Lommel Park or at Lincoln Park in West Lafayette.


We intend to be proactive with ALL of our library drop boxes moving forward.
