IYI Library Has Free Resources, Direct to You

The Virginia Beall Ball Library at the Indiana Youth Institute is home to a wide variety of books, DVDs and digital materials—all available to borrow for FREE.

Adult and Child staff has partnered with the Indiana Youth Institute library, and in the near future, you will receive information about a library account that has been created specifically for you. You will be able to log in and browse the catalog to request materials that will be mailed directly to your doorstep at no cost to you, with a postage-paid return envelope included! Your library account will also give you free access to great digital content—both eBooks and audiobooks are available to download anytime, anywhere.

Materials from the Subject Guides, such as Resources for Foster & Adoptive Parents, can be requested by clicking on a title, logging in and placing a request. If you are looking for free access to resources that will help you complete training for licensing requirements, the library has created a link to nearly 60 titles in the library catalog that are listed on the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) approved Alternative In-Service Training List. You can always contact IYI’s librarians at library@iyi.org or 1-800-343-7060 if you need any help finding resources and for answers to your questions.
