Write-On 2020

We’re open, but there are changes.

IPPL cardholders are welcome to come in and browse our shelves, but we no longer offer seating and tables.

There is a limit to the number of people in the building, but starting Monday make an appointment to guarantee your spot; remember to specify the number of people in your appointment.

Get all the details.
