The Library is Now Open!

IPL is Now Open-01

We look forward to continuing to offer browsing and computer services within our libraries while keeping you and our library staff safe during this time. 

Our Libraries are open to the public for the following services only: 

  • Browsing and checking out items 
  • Using a public computer 
  • Using the library’s fax/scanner or wireless printing 
  • Public seating (To provide safe and equitable access to seating, we ask guests to limit their stay to two hours or less in the building)


In order to increase service to customers wishing to connect to the internet and use digital applications, the IPL applied for and received a TSLAC CARES grant (#LS-246561-OLS-20) to purchase EnvisionWare tablets for use while in the South and West libraries. The tablets, which can be checked out from a self-service kiosk using a library card, will allow library patrons to access digital services, apply for jobs, do schoolwork, watch virtual programming, enjoy social media and more.

For your safety and ours, please follow these measures recommended by the CDC while in the library: 

  • Wear a mask covering your mouth and nose at all times while in the library 
  • Practice social distancing of at least 6 feet 
  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizer 
  • No food or drinks inside the building


The following services are unavailable at this time: 

  • Study rooms, meeting rooms and quiet rooms 
  • Activity areas 


Drive-thru curbside services are also available for pick-up and return of library items.
