Mark your calendars for Tuesday, September 16 at 6 pm for the second Randolph Township History Symposium in the Heyworth Library Community Room. The Heyworth History Club will be presenting a compilation of information on the thirteen one-room school houses that became the Unit 4 school district during the 1948 consolidation. The Heyworth History Club meets on the fourth Friday of each month. Join us as we investigate, record, and archive Randolph Township History. We welcome anyone with an interest in history or those who would like to add to the Alexander History room collection. Come view our past, share in our story, and keep it going.
History Mystery Photo #14 The Heyworth Public Library holds in it’s archive this picture. We know nothing of it’s origin, location, or the subjects of the photo. If you recognize the house in the background, or may have a similar photo in your family with knowledge of the picture, please let the library know any clues you can uncover for us. 473-2313.
Through a gift to the library from family and friends in Jerry Bittle’s memory, we have purchased canvas tote bags for individuals to checkout to carry their books home. The totes will checkout just like a book (3 week circulation, 1 renewal, and if late .10 cent a day fine/with $3.00 max). Jerry was a reader of mysteries. She would always come in the library for one book and leave with many. She always lamented that we should have bags to check out to take her books home. In her memory we will.
