The Huntington City-Township Public Library has partnered with six other public libraries in northeast Indiana to form a consortium called the Northeast Indiana Digital Library (NIDL).

By combining resources and creating a shared digital collection, these seven libraries have maximized their buying power to provide the greatest possible variety for their patrons at the lowest cost.

Other member libraries in the NIDL consortium include Berne Public Library, Eckhart Public Library in Auburn, Fremont Public Library, Nappanee Public Library, North Manchester Public Library and Wells County Public Library in Bluffton.
