Grandview Cemetery Caretakers Cottage  Did you realize there are 4,400 people interred in the Grand View Cemetery?

Hear tales about the lives of some of those buried there and learn about plans to restore the 1903 fieldstone Caretaker's Cottage.

This event will feature the life stories of a number of folks who helped build Greater Lafayette -- everything from building bridges to birthing babies!

Join us any time between 2 and 4pm. Sunday, May 20, 2018

Grandview Cemetery is located near the intersection of Grant and Salisbury Streets in West Lafayette.

Please park on one of the streets branching from Salisbury Street; limited parking for those cars with handicapped decals will be available on-site.





Overdrive service has been reinstated for reciprocal cardholders (those patrons with a blue card).

You may access the Library's Overdrive catalog by clicking the logo above or HERE.



Dan Rhodes, Manager of Government and Community Relations for the Greater Lafayette area presents a check for $8,000 to West Lafayette Public Library Director Nick Schenkel.

The donation will be used to fund the purchase of children’s books for all ages and the purchase of large print books

Duke's donated funds will also support a new Library initiative that will develop Memory Kits, containing multi-sensory materials focused on reminiscing, foster engagement, and discussion between individuals with memory loss and their caregivers.


Beginning January 1st, 2018 the Library will no longer be charging overdue fines for any Evergreen Indiana items checked out from WLPL!

Any overdue fees prior to that date will be cut in half.
