It’s a Party!! Come celebrate with us at our open house on Sunday, June 12 from 1:00-4:00 p.m as we celebrate 120 years of library service. In that 120 years, so much has changed. Do you remember card catalogs and signing a card to check out a book? We made our way through computer updates, building changes and building remodels to land where we are today in the heart of New Carlisle. We have become not just a place for books but a place to belong and to be a community.
During this event, all ages will enjoy entertainment, refreshments, and lots of activities in and around the Library. We will have an old-fashioned check-out desk complete with due date stampers, a photobooth, and a slideshow with pictures through the decades. You can visit our Local History Room and see how to scan photos, visit the Creative Space and watch the 3D printer, and visit the Exploration Garden for some fun outdoor activities. There will also be a Big Ole Bubble Show at 1:30 p.m. where you can see several bubble skits set to music with tiny to HUGE Bubbles. At 3:00 p.m., enjoy music by the local group Down by the Dock. Their music ranges the generations, everything from 1940’s Big Band, to 70’s and 80’s rock, to some of today’s most popular pop hits.
Whether you’ve been a patron for 100 years, or have never visited, we want you to join us for a party!
