Donations & Memorials

The library welcomes gifts of gently-used books and other materials. The library also accepts monetary donations, which are used to help purchase needed items that would otherwise be unaffordable. The library also has memorial donations to honor friends and family. For more information on memorials, please contact Adult Services–phone (317) 745-2604 ext. 120.

Homebound Delivery

The library offers a free service to patrons who, due to acute or extended illness, physical disabilities, or other extreme cases, are unable to come to the library in person. This service is available to DPL cardholders who are residents of Center Township. Patrons must be homebound for at least 2 months and have no other means of getting library materials. Materials are selected based on each patron’s interests, and delivery and pick-up is available with the help of library volunteers. For more information, contact Adult Services–phone (317) 745-2604 ext. 120

Inter-Library Loan

If the library does not have the book or other materials you’re looking for, we may be able to get the book for you on Inter-Library Loan (ILL) from a participating library. To make an ILL request, you must have a valid DPL or OTS card. PLAC patrons must contact their home library in order to request an inter-library loan.. A small fee may be charged for delivery, or the lending library may charge a lender’s fee. Some libraries will not loan out certain materials. For more information, contact Adult Services–phone (317) 745-2604 ext. 120 or us the Materials Request Form on our website.


The library sponsors a variety of programs throughout the year, including Summer Reading Clubs for both adults and children and book discussions. For a complete program listing, visit each department’s page, or check out our Events Calendar.
