Freegal no longer available

Due to its high cost, the Jeffersonville Township Public Library no longer subscribes to Freegal.

However, if you are a Jeffersonville Township resident, you can still check out full music albums through Hoopla! If you aren’t a Township resident, check with your home library to see if Hoopla is available through them.

SidewalkClosed

Sidewalk construction begins May 5 at Branch

The sidewalk replacement project at our Clarksville branch starts Wednesday, May 5th. The library remains open during this time. This is a two-phase construction project that will allow one entrance to stay open while the other is closed. The project was awarded to AML Construction who estimate the job will take three weeks to complete.

Phase 1: Eastern Boulevard entrance closed

The sidewalk on the Eastern Boulevard side of the building will be replaced in the first phase, which requires the temporary closure of the Eastern Boulevard parking lot, entrance, and bookdrop. Use the Triangle Drive entrance to access to library during this phase.

Phase 2: Triangle Drive entrance closed

The sidewalk at the Triangle Drive entrance will be replaced in the second phase, and new steps and handrails will be installed, requiring the temporary closure of the Triangle Drive parking lot, entrance, and bookdrop. Use the Eastern Boulevard entrance to access the library during this phase.
