Requests while MPL's doors are closed

The Indiana Room staff will be checking requests regularly. However, staff has no access to microfilm, so requests relying on those records will be delayed until MPL's doors reopen. 
Send your request and staff will let you know if we can help at this time. Please use this form for questions. 
Please be patient. Thanks for understanding.
