Upcoming Programs:

Randolph Township Cemetery Tour

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

Sign up today to reserve your seat on the tour bus.  We will board a bus from the library parking lot and visit two-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, May 16, 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, access 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.

Thank you to the State Bank of Bloomington, Heyworth Branch for their generous donation towards updating our local history records and materials.  The library recently used some of these funds to purchase Gardner Randolph of IL and Mitilda’s Story by Jacquelyn Hanson.  Jacquelyn is a decedent of Gardner Randolph, whom Randolph Township is named after.
