SHELTER-IN-PLACE UPDATE 3/22/20: Due to Dallas County’s shelter-in-place order, Irving libraries will suspend all IPL Express curbside and drive-up window services in addition to being closed to visitors. At this time, Irving residents and Irving ISD students should take advantage of online options to obtain a card. Nonresidents who would like to sign up for an account may purchase an e-card to access online services, which can be converted to a card to check out physical materials when the library reopens.
