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

Weekly Newsletter

Heyworth Public Library is excited to begin a LEGO TIME program this summer.  LEGO TIME will offer youth builders an opportunity to join together, create, and share inspiration.  It is truly amazing the creativity that LEGOS can unleash. LEGOS have inspired many fictional series and non-fiction books that are VERY popular at the library so we are going to bridge our love of reading and unleash our youths’ creativity within our walls.  We can’t wait to see what they can build.  We are asking for community members to look through their closets and donate LEGOS/Duplos their children have outgrown to help supplement our supplies.  You can drop off LEGOS at any time during regular hours.  If you would like to make a monetary donation to help purchase new LEGOS or more LEGO reading materials we would welcome your support as well.

Now taking gently used Hornet apparel.  The library is a collection site  to gather out-grown Heyworth school logo/Hornet pride clothing for the HOPE organization.  Did you know that the library is also a drop off location for your Box Tops, Tyson and Campbell’s labels?  You may drop off clothing or labels during regular business hours.

Monthly Genealogy and Local History meeting

Wed., May 16 at 10 am.  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.
