CULTIVATING A COMMUNITY OF READERS

The West Lafayette Public Library is proud to announce the opening of a neighborhood Little Free Library and a walk-up library book return box in both Lommel Park and Lincoln Park (seen in the photo above) in West Lafayette.

Working with the West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department, with funding from North Central Health Services (NCHS), the West Lafayette Library is expanding the network of library service points in West Lafayette.

The book drops and the little free libraries are now available for use in both parks. 

You will also find Little Free Libraries in Tapawingo Park, Cumberland Park, along Kalberer Road (west of Yeager Road), and near the Community Gardens (west of Salisbury Street). Our thanks to the Lafayette Rotary Club for their building and West Lafayette Parks and Recreation Department for their installation of these Little Free Libraries.

The Little Free Libraries are stocked by both the West Lafayette Public Library and by residents of the neighborhoods the little free libraries serve.

Please use and enjoy these West Lafayette Library services!  You're welcome to "take a book, leave a book" at any of the little free libraries.

Tippecanoe County Public Library is also in an OverDrive consortium but we felt that it would give our patrons, including our reciprocal borrowers, access to more materials if we joined seperate Indiana OverDrive consortium.
