NORTH WEBSTER — The North Webster Community Public Library is a member of Evergreen Indiana, a statewide consortium of libraries that readily share materials. By signing up for a NWCPL library card, you automatically unlock a realm of library possibilities.
With your North Webster library card, you can check out items from any other Evergreen library in the entire state. Don’t want to make the drive? No problem — just place the item you want on hold and a statewide courier system will deliver it to the North Webster library for you to pick up. To make things even easier, download the Evergreen app which allows you to manage your library account effortlessly. View the items you currently have out, place items on hold and even track your hold items travel progress just like you would an Amazon package.
NWCPL and other Evergreen libraries are in the middle of a courier transition at the moment, so wait times for books may be slightly delayed, but the library is excited about the move and are confident that inter-library loan wait times will be significantly lower in a week or two.
Want some even better news? There are many other Evergreen libraries in the area. Syracuse, Milford, Pierceton, Columbia City, Noble County, Fulton County and more are all members of Evergreen, so your North Webster library card can be used at any of these other area libraries. So why not join this huge network of Indiana libraries by signing up for your North Webster library card today — it is well worth the time and effort.
