Shelby County Public Library

In 1901, a request was sent to Andrew Carnegie for funds to build a permanent library in Shelbyville, Indiana. A total of $20,000 was granted, a lot on Broadway Street opposite the High School was purchased, and the library was completed in 1903 (read more history). Today, the Shelby County Public Library remains a community resource dedicated to life-long learning and committed to the freedom of information.  

In 2011, the library served 22,554 card holders. The following resources are currently available for checkout or in-library use from the Shelbyville and Morristown branch: 135,735 volumes of fiction and nonfiction, 9,929 audio/visual materials, 132 serial subscriptions, 725 electronic format materials, 65 licensed databases and 6 laptops.

In May 2012, the library joined nearly 100 libraries by transitioning to the statewide Evergreen IN catalog system. This allows patrons to check out, reserve, and return items at any Indiana Evergreen library. Learn more about Evergreen. In the late summer 2012, patrons will also have access to electronic books that can be downloaded to computers or e-reader devices.

Shelby County Reads
This nonprofit organization was established to encourage literacy and to celebrate community. By bringing in authors, hosting events, and selecting different genres of material each year, it is Shelby County Read's purpose to expose the community to a broad range of literary material as well as support discussion of the chosen books with engaging programs.

Shelby County Reads will be celebrating its eighth season this February. Each year we choose books around one theme for all ages in the community to read and discuss. These books are then donated to the schools for libraries and classrooms to use. Related events are scheduled throughout February and March.
