Weekly Newsletter ~ November 25, 2014

The Heyworth Public Library Board of Trustees and library staff would like to take this time to give thanks to our community for all the support, volunteer hours, and gifts given to the library. We love supporting Randolph Township and the N.W. portion of Downs Township customers with material and programming that is entertaining and educational. Our district has a per capita of 5,506 residents with 2,541 holding library cards at the end of the last fiscal year, June 30, 2014. We strive to add digital resources as our budget allows. We want to be a reflection of our community in our materials offered and services provided. Last fiscal year we circulated 34,898 physical and electronic items to our community. That is just a little over 13 items per person circulated to our 2,541 card holders. Library cards are free to those who live in our district. Stop in today and get yours. Visit heyworthlibrary.com to see all that we offer. We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls at your Heyworth Public Library.
