West Lafayette Public Library is expanding Contactless Pickup!

Starting Monday, June 1st, our new Contactless Pickup hours with be Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 3-6 pm, and Saturday 10-1.

There is no longer a 5 item limit.

Patrons may place holds via the Evergreen Catalog, or over the phone (765-743-2261) by noon the day before pick-up times. 

Disclaimer: Staff will do their best to pull all the items a patron has requested, but patrons are not guaranteed these items. 

How does it work?

Step one: Place items on hold via phone (765-743-2261) or online by noon the day before pick up times are available. We are not able to offer Interlibrary Loan at this time. 

Step two: You will receive a confirmation email or a phone call from the Library that your books have been checked out to you. This indicates that your books will be ready for pick up. 

Step three: To pick up your items, please come to the Library on Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 3-6 pm, and Saturday 10-1. Upon arrival please CALL the Library at 765-743-2261, and a staff member will place your items in the Columbia St vestibule.

Step four: Wait for the staff member to place your items on a table in the Columbia Street Vestibule. Once the staff member is safely back in the Library you may retrieve your items.

Colorful Mind Virtual Exhibit

We were disappointed to announce our temporary closure so soon after this exhibit was hung. Though we know nothing can compare to seeing art in person, we are happy to share some images from the gallery alongside a beautiful video created by Ms. Choi.
To view slightly larger versions of each photo, right-click on the image and choose “Open image in new tab.”

Colorful Mind
A collection of artwork created by young local artists
Curated by Jong-un Choi

As part of their commitment to bring art into the community, the Colorful Mind youth art exhibition is dedicated to the educational and artistic advancement of the young talented artists in the West Lafayette community. The purpose of this show is to provide all young budding artists with opportunities to advance their talent. This exhibition is a valuable incentive for our young people; it encourages an appreciation for art lovers and reflects the fine quality of art instruction and talent which exist in our community.
