Library Facilities and Services

The South Irving, West Irving, and Valley Ranch Libraries are open to the public for browsing and checking out items, borrowing a public PC, or using the library's fax/scanning and wireless printing services. No reservation will be required to visit the library. Staff will clean and disinfect common areas throughout the day.*  IPL Express Curbside and Drive-Up Window services remain available until further notice to pick up holds and wireless printing services. Some account services, such as payments and replacement cards, will require entering the building.

* Due to the size of the South Library, it will be closed once a day for staff to focus on surface cleaning for the safety of our staff and guests.


All Irving facilities will follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines regarding COVID-19 health recommendations. 

To keep everyone safe, each library requests visitors observe the following guidelines:

  • Everyone wear a mask covering nose and mouth at all times in the building. 
  • Keep at least 6 feet distance from other guests (except family members)
  • Wash hands regularly, or use available hand sanitizer
  •  Use the library's self-service kiosks when checking out items
  •  If you're feeling sick or coughing, please stay home
