Federal Depository Library Program 

What is the Federal Depository
Library Program? 

The Allen County Public Library is a member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) whose mission is to provide free local access to information from the federal government. Since 1896, our library has been a member of the FDLP and today our resources include print and electronic resources such as census statistics, laws passed by Congress, Supreme Court opinions, historic reports by various federal government agencies, definitive volumes of military history, compilations of presidential speeches and statements, and more. Parts of ACPL’s collection date back as far as the 1860s.   


While the print materials are accessible at the Main library, we provide electronic access to the same materials online. You can access these digitized materials by searching the library’s catalog from anywhere in the world by clicking on the weblinks included in each title’s catalog record.
