We are excited to announce our newest resource, hoopla digital: a new digital media service provided to you, our patron, through which you may access and enjoy over half a million titles, from six different formats: Movies, TV, Music Albums, eAudiobooks , eBooks, and Comics/Graphic Novels. All in one location, from your computer, tablet or Smartphone!
With hoopla, there are no hold lists, no extra apps or accounts needed or special steps to use it. It just works!
On a mobile device, borrowed content may be temporarily downloaded and accessed offline or, either in the app or on a computer; all borrowed content may be enjoyed while connected to the internet by streaming.
We really love this service. It is easy to use and provides our library patrons instant access (again, with no waiting!!) to any titles they want. As a library cardholder, you may borrow up to 5 titles per month.
To register for and enjoy hoopla digital free with your library card, please download the hoopla digital app from your Apple or Google Play store on your mobile device. If you are using a computer, you may visit https://www.hoopladigital.com/ . For more information or should you have questions, please contact us.
We hope you enjoy hoopla digital and look forward to your feedback!
You may now reserve soon-to-be-released books before they are officially published. Each month we will have several upcoming and sure-to-be popular titles that will be available to reserve in our online catalog, even before they are published. A current list of upcoming releases is posted at the library, or you can call our reference desk for more information at 317-896-9391.

If you have haven’t found what you are looking for in the Evergreen catalog, you may want to try searching SRCS, which stands for Statewide Remote Circulation Service.
SRCS, Indiana’s Statewide Remote Circulation Service, is Indiana’s latest and largest resource sharing tool. It links together the catalogs of over 150 Indiana libraries into a single interface containing over 30 million items all held by Indiana Libraries. Authorized users can search this combined catalog and request to have selected materials delivered to their home library using the InfoExpress courier, where they can check them out. SRCS is not a replacement for your library’s Inter-Library Loan system, rather it works with over 15 different ILS systems to provide this extended access and functionality.
To access the SRCS homepage, go to our “Find Materials” section on our website’s homepage and click on the SRCS link/logo. You will need to know your library card barcode and password to log in, search, and place a request through the SRCS system. Please stop in the library if you don’t know your barcode or password.
You can now browse and borrow digital magazines and newspapers all on the same website as your eBooks, audiobooks and streaming video. OverDrive has partnered with NOOK® by Barnes & Noble to make popular digital magazines and newspapers available for lending.
All you need is a valid library card, a NOOK® account, the free NOOK app (available for all major devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows 8) or a NOOK tablet.
Some of the new items you’ll find on OverDrive:
- Every Day with Rachel Ray
