During the first-ever IndyPL Library Card Drive on Butler’s campus, 50 Butler patrons were able to apply for and get, or renew, a card for the Indianapolis Public Library. Thank you to those who braved the weather and stopped by to help us celebrate National Library Week in this partnership with our local public library, and congratulations on your new library cards!

For those who were unable to stop by during the event, you may still get a library card for IndyPL, which will give you access to the more than 2 million titles in their collection, including ebooks and song downloads. Simply stop by an IndyPL branch with your student ID and a piece of mail verifying your campus address to get a card, and start taking advantage of the materials and resources available through your Indianapolis community!

One question that gets asked rather frequently is about whether a certain program is installed on the library computers. I’m happy to say that BOTH libraries are on I.R.’s official list of “Departmental Labs” and have all the installed programs listed on the I.R. “Lab Locations” website:

I have also included this information (with a link to that same “Lab Locations” page) in the FAQ list on our website.
