CAMP HPLD – It’s Where You Want to Be!

There is still time for anyone to join in and read for prizes this summer. Stop by the library for details. Summer reading for tickets to enter prize drawings ends July 29. NEW this year, children age 3 – 6th grade may continue to read for the basic prize packet through August 31. We reserve the right to substitute prizes if prizes run out.

Thank you to our local sponsors for our great selection of prizes: Dowers Auto Sales, Our Little Backyard Farm, Huck’s, Perfectly Posh by Stacy Morger, Heyworth Subway, Farmer Scott, IGA – Heyworth, Pit Row, and Country Mist Apple Orchard. Plus so much more from surrounding area businesses!

Our end of summer reading event will be Thursday, July 27 at 6 p.m. The Normal Storyteller, Dr. Michael Lockett, will be here to share campfire stories and songs for all ages. This event is planned to be outdoors so please bring a lawn chair or blanket. If inclement weather, the event will still go on in the Community Room of the library. Thank you to the First State Bank of Bloomington – Heyworth Branch for sponsoring this event.

Back to School, and Back to the Library!

Are you ready for back to school? Get your children one of the most useful back to school supplies – a library card. It is a great way to start the school year with books and eBooks at their fingertips. We also offer free Wi-Fi. Children can also use our computers for homework, with parental permission, when they are eleven (11) years old and up. Library cards are not just for kids! If you live in the Heyworth Public Library District, stop in and get your free library card today. Unlock your passion for books, audiobooks, movies, cake pans, music, and so much more. We are so much larger than our walls!

Fall in with our Adult Book Club           

September 7th we will kick off a new adult book club. The club will meet at the library at 6:30 p.m. No library card necessary, but it is handy to reserve your book, audiobook, or eBook with a library card. Book titles will be revealed in August. Everyone is invited to attend. Sign up is encouraged so we know who is interested. If this time and day do not work – PLEASE let us know that you are interested and what day and time would work.

Memorials and Donations

A gift of a memorial or donation is a meaningful way to celebrate life or an occasion. Gifts to the Heyworth Public Library District support programs, collections, and services. With donations and memorials, the library is able to expand its collection and add programs for all ages. The library is recognized as a charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service, in accordance with 170(b) (1) (A) (v) and 170(c) (1) of the Internal Revenue Code. A donation to the library is a gift to the community.

The library greatly appreciates the gifts and memorials donated to the Heyworth Public Library. It is through these gifts and memorials that we can offer services and materials that go beyond the ordinary. For more information on gifts, memorials, or bequests, contact the director, Beth Porter, at 473-2313.
