Heyworth Public Library District

We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Weekly Newsletter

Happy National Library Week! Stop in and see what’s new at your hometown library.  We have a bulletin board where you can share what you love about your Heyworth Public Library.  Also during this week the library will waive $.50 of a patron’s fine for each can or package of food they donate.  The food collected will be sent to the local Heyworth Food Pantry for distribution to area families.   

A new length of time to check out DVDs began last week.  NEW DVDs will remain at the current 3 day check out.  All other DVDs will now be available for 7 day check out and patrons can place holds on these as well.  If you don’t see the movie you want to watch, you can ask a librarian to hold it for you when it does come in the library or place a hold at your convenience from your own computer through our website.  We can also borrow older movie titles from around the state that we don’t own. 

Upcoming Programs:

Randolph Township Cemetery Tour

Saturday, May 5, 9:30a.m. – 2p.m.  Bring your own lunch (Rain or Shine)

We will board a bus from the library parking lot and visit two to three sites then break for lunch at the Heyworth Library Community Room (bring your own brown bag) and then finish our tour.  We will end at the Heyworth Cemetery where a number of veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War through Vietnam are at rest.  Those who want to stay at the Heyworth Cemetery will be welcome to stay and walk back to the library parking lot at their leisure or depart at 2 pm via the bus.  This is a free event – donations are welcome.

Monthly Genealogy and Local History meeting

Wednesday, April 18, 10 a.m. 

All are welcome to help preserve Randolph Township history.  Come join us as we organize the historical records and materials we have collected at the library, plan the cemetery tour, and begin an oral history project.  If you have local history or genealogical items to donate to the Alexander Room, please see Alice or Beth at the library.  You can view the current title holdings on our website under the Local History and Genealogy link.
