Elkhart Public Library

8 Things you didn’t know your library card gave you

An EPL card gives patrons access to the vast collection of materials inside the library, but it also does so much more.
New library cardholders often don’t realize all of the benefits and perks available to them through EPL.
Here are our top things you might not realize can do with your library card:
  1. Stream media: Television shows and movies aren’t just on Hulu or Netflix. Hoopla digital has hundreds of shows and movies available, for free, with your library card
  2. Access the Goshen Public Library through our consortium
  3. Print from home. Out of ink? Printer jammed? No problem, the library has several options for getting your materials to a library printer for easy pick up. We also offer scanning and faxing services
  4. Genealogical, family and local history research resources.
  5. Ebooks, magazines and audiobooks: the library has services for getting digital reading materials onto your favorite device and it’s all free
  6. Paywall free newspapers
  7. A pass to the Wellfield Botanic Gardens that may be checked out
  8. Wi-Fi at all our branches and the Public Computer Center downtown

And of course, access to thousands of books, albums and movies.

Look around, explore the downtown library and our branches and see what we have for you. Hopefully you will find something to educate, enlighten and entertain you. Welcome and thanks for joining us.
