ACPL has been an integral part of the social and cultural fabric of Allen County since 1895. 122 years! We began with 3606 volumes in a room in City Hall; today we have the main library downtown and thirteen thriving branch locations. Our collection has grown to include millions of books -- but that's just a small part of what we offer. Not only do we provide a variety of physical materials like books, dvds, music, and videogames, but we also provide access to online resources. We offer Maker Labs and a variety of programming for all ages. And that's still just a portion of what we do.
Today's ACPL is a creative and engaging center for our community. As the workplace and economy shifts, we are here to connect you with the resources you need to shift with them. Information overload? We can help! Finding reliable, trustworthy information is what we do.

Becky likes to read … A LOT. When she’s not reading, she likes to pretend that she can garden. Her thumb has no hint of green whatsoever but luckily her plants are forgiving. Her favorite books are The Shannara series by Terry Brooks
