We are starting an outreach program for Starke County Library patrons who are unable to come into the library due to extended illness, injury or disability. At this time we are limiting delivery to within the city limits of Knox or San Pierre. All items except fiction dvds are available with the service. Deliveries and pickups will be every two weeks. The requested items will be delivered in a red and white cloth bag with library logo on and an inventory sheet showing what is being delivered. The patron will sign the sheet after making sure all items are there.
Zinio from Starke County Public Library brings free magazines to your computer or web-enabled device! Zinio is an unlimited, simultaneous-use digital newsstand. This high quality service is the same as that used by many consumers to access magazines in their digital form, but is now available for libraries through Recorded Books Digital.
