Huge New Digital Library Coming to FCPL

The Frankfort Community Public Library, and the branches in Rossville, Mulberry, and Michigantown, are excited to share that our digital library is growing. On Tuesday, March 1, FCPL merges with a new statewide consortium called Indiana Digital Library. This new library includes collections of e-books, e-audiobooks, and digital magazines from almost 200 libraries across the state. FCPL cardholders will have the ability to borrow materials from both our library, and other member libraries.

A volunteer team of qualified librarians plans to assist with collection development and actively monitor holds.  That means a shorter wait time for the books you want to read. We anticipate a smooth transition, but here are some important items of note:

  • After March 1, you will need to log into your app again, using your current username and password.
  • Items you have checked out and your holds list will transfer. They will be there when you log back in.
  • You do need to download your reading history. Follow the links below to learn how:
  • If you currently use the OverDrive app, now is the perfect time make the switch to Libby. The OverDrive app is retired and the Libby app is OverDrive’s updated version.
  • If you have any questions or issues, email us at or call (765)654-8746.

               Your local library is proud to provide access to thousands of e-books and e-audiobooks. An annual subscription accounts like, Kindle Unlimited and Audible, costs up to $300 a year, but a library card is free.

“The new Indiana Digital Library consortium will be a great service and benefit to Indiana libraries and the customers of Indiana libraries. This collaboration is a great example of Indiana libraries working together to provide high quality to library users”

Jake Speer, State Librarian
