Free State Park Pass program Continues in 2017

2016-State-Park-PassesThe 2016 program to provide Hoosiers free access to state parks by checking out an entrance pass at their local public library, was so successful that the Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources has announced that the program will be continued in 2017. The passes will provide access to Indiana’s 32 state parks and also to Indiana’s state forest recreation areas where entrance fees are charged. The 2017 pass has not arrived yet; the Library will announce when it does. For more information about this wonderful opportunity, ask a member of our staff.

Book Spotlight

barry"The Worst Class Trip Ever" by Dave Barry -- The renowned humor writer turns his talent once again to fiction especially for junior high and young adults.  When Wyatt and his 8th-grade class go on the annual class trip to Washington, DC, they think they've stumbled upon terrorists planning an attack, but it's much more complicated -- and funny -- that that, and a lot of craziness happens before Wyatt and his friends save the President.  Maybe they won't end up Grounded For Life after all!  -- Don Parker
