The Hammond Public Library, in partnership with Purdue University Calumet, is a Depository Library for the United States Government. As part of the Federal Depository Library Program, HPL is one of a few libraries in the State of Indiana with this distinction. The purpose of the FDLP is to disseminate government information. The access to our government's documents through FDLP reflects our country's democratic system and open government.

Materials within the Government Documents collection are located at Main Library, 564 State St.

Some of the material is cataloged. Of this material, some are able to be checked out, while the majority are reference materials. Check with the librarian at the Information Desk. For more information, questions, or inquiries, please contact HPL's Government Documents librarian at (219) 931-5100, Ext. 349.

Copies may be made for 10 cents per copy.
