Check Out The Irving Public Library, Virtually!

The Irving Public Library has long been a cornerstone of the community. Over the past year, many of their programs and services have shifted online, keeping its presence as strong as ever. Here are a few of its many offerings you can enjoy virtually.


You can check out eBooks and digital audiobooks from your favorite app — Hoopla, Libby, or Overdrive — letting you read on any device. All you need is a library card, which you can apply for online. If you need help picking something good to read, the staff always has recommendations.

Join a Book Club

Reading a good book is even better when you can talk about it. Luckily, IPL hosts a wide variety of virtual book clubs for kids, teens, and adults. This is a great way to motivate yourself and make new online friends.

Learn a Language

You've got several options to boost your linguistic prowess at IPL. You can polish your Spanish with the Be Bilingual series, which is taught through short and fun video tutorials. Or if you're looking to deep-dive into another tongue, Mango Languages has lessons for 63 languages accessible with your library card.

Make Art

IPL recently partnered with Creativebug, a video lesson-based platform where you can learn any artistic skill, from woodworking to painting. But for something more casual, it also hosts frequent drawing, coloring, and crafting events that are relaxing for people of any skill level. Either way, you'll have a blast.

Pick Up Professional Skills

Lynda is another course-based service but aimed at professional development. Topics include business, marketing, software, and plenty more technical skills. However, you can also hone certain personal and artistic skills like photography and writing. Lynda allows you to create a whole course schedule for yourself, ensuring that your career will benefit. With these 5 Irving Public Library virtual activities, you'll never feel bored at home again. But don't forget to step outside for some fresh air, which you can do at these beautiful public gardens near Irving.
