Indiana: An All-Digital Branch of the Floyd County Public Library Coming Soon

The all-digital branch will be located in Galena, IN.

From The News and Tribune:

The historic structure…will become a digital library which will allow residents in the county access to all the online resources and services that are available to patrons at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library’s main branch. It will also have a maker’s space room with a 3-D printer, scanner, sewing machine and other devices to encourage people to try something new.

“The vision of it is very exciting,” New Albany-Floyd County Public Library Director Melissa Merida said. “It will also provide meeting space in the county and be a safe place for kids to come after school.”

Books can be reserved and picked up at the digital branch location, but there won’t be many available at the location, only computers. Books and movies will be available to download and the old house provides plenty of space for reading and meetings. There will be a small selection of children’s books at the branch.
