April Events


Katie had some little lambs who followed her to the library one day and made the children laugh and play!  We appreciate Ms. Katie Siders bringing her new lambs in for a special visit during our regular Mother Goose on the Loose story time this past Tuesday!   Everyone enjoyed petting the lambs, and we all learned a lot about lambs and sheep.

On display at the library this month is the pottery and ceramic art of Whittney Corum.  Ms. Corum’s work is creative, whimsical, and well worth your visit.  Also on display are paintings, historical photos, and fascinating information about the old Creitz Mill in our town.   It is interesting to see four different artist’s perspectives on the mill.


On Tuesday, April 17th at 10:30 a.m., toddlers and preschoolers are invited to our “I am Moving – I am Learning!” program with Alicia Criswell of Purdue Extension.  Mother Goose on the Loose returns with Ms. Kim on Tuesday, April 24th.  


From 11am to 1pm on Tuesday, April 24th, Ambassador Health is offering a health screening and health information at the library.  Drop by to check up on your blood pressure and more.


Also on Tuesday, April 24th, the library is thrilled to host a candidates’ forum for our community.  According to Brenda McLane of Hometown Media Group, “The 3 races featured will be: Wayne County Sheriff; Wayne County Council District 3; and Indiana House District 56.  The evening will feature light refreshments and moderated discussion facilitated by James A. King, and Q & A from the audience.”  Thank you to Hometown Media Group for organizing this event.  I am looking forward to hearing from our candidates!


Come to our introduction to bullet journaling session, “Do U do BUJO?” on Wednesday, April 25th at 6:00 p.m. to get started in this hip, new organization trend.
