Although our programs are appropriate for all ages, some are especially helpful for older adults. Whether you are learning a new technology, researching your family tree, or exploring a creative hobby, we have something for you. 

Libraries today offer much more than books, movies, and quiet spaces! Literacy, adventure, and exploration are built into our adult programs, so you can enjoy the Library in new and exciting ways as everyone reads, learns, connects, and creates!

Our adult collection includes materials for ages 18 years and older including fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, audiobooks, Playaways, western section, Christian fiction, large print, large print Christian fiction, magazines, and DVDs. Be sure to stop by our Indiana Room for your family tree exploration. We also have an extensive eLibrary collection! To learn more about how we choose materials, see our Collection Development Policy.
