During this time of curtailed library services many publishing and education services have provided special access to their services. We have also found some links to sites that may be of interest as an alternative to the library, especially for kids. Click here for LIBRARY ALTERNATIVES.
For local coronavirus press releases and daily updates, local resources & guidance please see the INYO COUNTY COVID-19 RESPONSE page. We have also collected some helpful CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION LINKS.
The Inyo County Free Library was formed in 1913, serves a population of about 18,000, and has six branches. The Library has a rich collection of local history materials at the Central Library in Independence, the county seat.
The library collection contains over 130,000 items, books, audio, and video, which can be discovered through our catalog. This collection is also supplemented through our e-services with collections of e-books, downloadable audiobooks, e-magazines, and streaming video. Public internet computers are available at all of the library branches.
