  • Book displays change monthly to  highlight subjects of special interest.


Need a quick tour to help acquaint you with the library's facility and resources?  Brief individual tours can be arranged to help you find what you need.  Ask at the circulation desk.  

Would you like to visit the library with a group?  In order to plan adequately for staff time and for your group's interest, we ask that you call the library well in advance to set a date and time.  Groups for young people are encouraged to make arrangements with the Youth Services Librarian.   Phone (260) 726-7890 with your requests.



A speaker's bureau, with 15-20 minutes presentations about the history of the library is available to area organizations.  We'd love to share information about the library, especially what we learned during our 2002 "Celebrating 100 Years of Public Library Service" and what we plan for the future here in our community.  Phone (260) 726-7890 to set a time and place!
