Indian River Area Library

The Indian River Area Library invites all residents of Tuscarora Township to come and check us out. We diligently strive to answer the needs and interests of our community. Your library is a place to read, a place to study, a warm place to stay on a snowy day, a place to go when you want to know, and a place to gather with old friends and meet new ones.  Check out all of our events at our web site.
