New this fall are Anime Movie Saturdays held every 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:30 a.m. Make plans to join us on Saturday, October 18th. Teens at our Anime art class this summer expressed interest in the library holding Anime Movies. So help us spread the word.

This program is free and we encourage Anime movie goers to bring their own snack and drinks with screw cap lids.

Help the Heyworth History Club by answering a one question survey on the library website, the library Facebook page, or stop in and fill out a paper survey.  We are seeking input on future research projects that would interest the community.

An encore presentation of last month’s Heyworth History Symposium: One Room School Houses of Randolph Township will be shown on October 21 at 6 p.m. in the library’s community room.
