Pulaski County Human Services offices will remain open and render whatever services they can by appointment. They will also continue to operate the Food Pantry throughout this time; however, they will be transitioning to a “drive-through” model until further notice to eliminate face-to-face contact for staff, volunteers, and clients.
Drive through pantry open week days 9:30 am – 11:30 am
Both the Von Tobel and Westside Centers senior centers will be closed for 3-4 weeks. Senior Nutrition participants will be provided with alternative meals during this time. Seniors enrolled in the nutrition program will be contacted regarding this option.

Even though the library is closed, we are still working for you!
Indiana’s Stay-at-Home order has been extended through April 20th. The library will remain closed for the duration of this order.
Staff members have been reaching out to regular library patrons, participating in virtual training sessions, and putting together always-accessible digital resources.
The library has also been coordinating with other local organizations, from helping the Pulaski County Health Department get the word out about needed items, to loaning iPads to the hospital so that patients can keep in touch with loved ones.
No books or other items will be due until the library resumes normal services. You do not need to renew your materials: we are not charging late fees at this time.
Our book drops are currently closed: please hold on to your items for now!
