Summertime at the Library

During the lazy days of summer, business usually slows at the library. Patrons come in to find a cool corner to read and relax, check their email and take their time browsing for books. Kids play with puzzles, activity tables, and on the computers.

But on Tuesday mornings our KIPS (Kindergarten Prep School) brings in about 80 preschoolers and things get a little crazy! The children's area is abuzz with sound and movement!

If you're looking for that peaceful time at your library, you might want to visit another day!



Get to the Root of it All!

The Summer Reading Program themes are based on underground or digging into things. Why not try digging into your past with a visit to the library's Indiana Room? New this summer is a computerized microfilm reader with multiple capabilities. Our resident genealogist, Shirley Dollar, loves to help people find their roots. She can get you started if you don't know what to do. Call her at the library at 260-726-7890 or email sdollar@jaypcl.lib.in.us.
