Reference Desk

The Library can provide quick answers to short questions, or direct your research for longer questions. Trained staff can help you use a wide variety or reference materials, both print and electronic. We are available in person at the Library’s main floor Reference Desk.

This service is provided for residents of Floyd County and areas covered by contracts of reciprocal service. If you live outside our service area we can answer only those questions which pertain to New Albany or Floyd County, Indiana. There is a fee per page for materials photocopied and mailed by staff at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library. We will inform you of the number of pages and the cost for the copies before they are sent to you. We will provide short, factual answers to questions and/or suggest search strategies; however, staff limitations prevent us from doing extensive research or providing lengthy book lists.

Computer Classes

The library offers free, introductory computer classes to the public on Tuesday and Thursday evening, and one Saturday.

All computer classes are held in the Computer Lab located on the lower level foyer by the back door. Due to limited space, advanced registration is required. You will also need a flash drive for the classes, although you can use the same drive for all classes.
