Looking for a non-fiction video to supplement your reading in a particular area? It’s easier than ever to find a match since both books and videos use the same numbering for subjects. It’s especially helpful with “how-to” kinds of things like cooking or home improvement. Travel videos and guidebooks make a great combination. Just match up the subject’s numbers from the spine.
It works in the Children’s Area too, though we’ve also added special slots for popular non-fiction series like The Magic School Bus and Bill Nye the Science Guy.

15 years ago - Several articles addressed questions about taxes and funding as signatures were being gathered in support of the library building project.
10 years ago - Newsnotes thanked Gary Miller who presented the library with a compilation of reports published during 1949 and a 1999 series of articles about the local epidemic titled 1949 Polio Epidemic in Jay County.
5 years ago - On the bookmobile a student was asked “What book did you return today?” “Excuse me,” replied the student. The staffer asked three times before discovering that the returned book was Excuse Me! by Lisa Kopelke, in which “a frog who loves to burp learns the value of good manners.”
As a child, my number one best friend was the librarian in my grade school.
I actually believed all those books belonged to her.
Come join the book reading group Monday, April 19th at 7:00 p.m. when they discuss On Agate Hill by Lee Smith.
On Agate Hill purports to tell the story of a Reconstruction-era life from what’s found in a box of old diaries. Inventing a box of memories to glean a story from should not be a surprise. Lee Smith says herself that she has been making stories from whatever she found around her (or inside her) since she could talk.
Join in the discussion! The group meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
Friends of the Library will meet Tuesday, April 20thth at 6:30 p.m.
New friends always welcome!
Ask at the desk for a free 30-minute one-on-one class with a staff instructor during regular hours.
You may be able to start immediately if the instructor and a spot in the gallery are available! Or reserve a specific time to fit your schedule. Call 260-726-7890.
Many thanks to those who have made gifts to the library in memory of loved ones. A bookplate is placed in each volume to denote the special gift.
