Thanks so much to Kim Riggs R.N. for taking time to offer a program on Essential Oils at the library last week. We appreciate local people wanting to share their interests with our patrons!

Megan Nobbe also came last Wednesday to teach a class on Finance Basics! Thanks for being willing to share this important information with us.


Library Director Vicki Melek and Children’s Librarian Kim Scott attended the annual Indiana Evergreen Conference on March 31st in Indianapolis. Indiana State Librarian, Jacob Speer shared the State of Evergreen for 2016. We have 112 Evergreen libraries in Indiana. This includes Cambridge City, Hagerstown, Centerville, Knightstown and Dublin locally.  We are excited to add New Castle Henry County Public Library to the Evergreen family as of May 3! This means anyone with an Evergreen library card can now use the New Castle Library also! Evergreen libraries circulated 8,486,778 items last year and transited between libraries 668,019 items! We all have 7,056,000 holdings and include 62 counties.

It was a great conference and Kim and Vicki brought back useful information for the library staff!
