Sign up for Summer Reading Program starts June 6

Take your place at the starting starting line and get ready to race – it’s almost time to start running, er reading, for the 2016 Summer Reading Program. You can get started Monday, June 6 and it will run for 6 weeks.

Children from babies to incoming 8th-graders sign up in the Children’s Department. Teens – students entering 7th-12th grades – sign up for the teen program at the Reference Department. (Incoming 6th-8th-graders can choose between the children and teen reading programs.) Adults register in the Reference Department. We have plenty of prizes and activities for all ages. This year’s themes are about fitness and health. So on your mark … get set … READ!

Indiana History back home; museum to reopen soon

Back Home Again in Indiana – the Indiana History Room, that is. Indiana History has moved back to its home in the Carnegie Building, ready to help patrons with questions about genealogy and Indiana history. The department had been displaced during the messiest part of the Museum renovation, camping out for weeks in the Teen Room next to the Reference Desk.

Meanwhile, the work on the Museum continues. The new exhibit and the refreshed museum is expected to open later this summer. Stay tuned.
