SJCPL supports the cultural life of our community. We want our patrons to have opportunities for learning and enjoyment not only at SJCPL but also at the many notable area museums. Start your day at the library and then visit one of our area museums with a museum pass (good for up to six people) available for free-of-charge checkout at the Main Library. Your choices include:
Libraries and museums all support the cultural well-being of our community, and free access allows for everyone to share in the benefits of these institutions. Providing access to area museums supports SJCPL’s mission for the public to “Learn, Discover, and Enjoy.”
Gaming comes in many forms at SJCPL. From large scale tourney play at our monthly Save*Point events to neighborhood gaming opportunities at several of our branch locations, you'll find plenty of challengers. For more information check out our calendar of events or check out some games to play at home.
Our patrons have the opportunity to browse a collection of over 200,000 items found at our many locations, but we recognize that some residents have difficulty borrowing materials through conventional means. That’s where we come in. The staff and volunteers of Homebound Services work tirelessly delivering materials to those unable to leave their homes or comfortably navigate our collection. Like our online e-book collection and databases, Homebound services bring our materials directly into your homes. To find out more about this service give us a call at 574-282-4663 or contact us.
SJCPL helps you gather the information that answers your questions and satisfies your pursuit for knowledge. The Internet might provide quick and easy answers for everyday questions, but our research resources reach a depth not always available with online searches. At SJCPL our librarians will help you track down your information call us at 574-282-4646 or contact us.
You can hear a story over the phone 24 hours a day at 574-282-4660, brought to you by the Children’s Services Department.
