Summer Reading for Adults!

The theme for summer reading is Exercise Your Mind — Read!  The Adult program begins May 31 and ends July 31.  For each book, ebook, audiobook or magazine you read and record on a reading log, you receive a stamp. Eight stamps complete the program and you can choose either a book or a water bottle!

For  a chance at winning a Fire Tablet you may write a short review of a library book, ebook or audiobook and turn it in for a Grand Prize entry form.  If you write a review of a book by an Indiana author, you’ll receive an entry form and a special prize! Last if you complete the Exercise Your Mind Bingo card and turn it in you’ll receive another chance!

Make this summer a reading summer!

Volunteers Honored

Brown County Public Library Volunteers were honored at a luncheon at the Library.

Library staff prepared the lunch which included a variety of pasta dishes, salad, bread and dessert. The volunteers do many tasks for us that make the library that special place we all enjoy. The Friends of the Library BOOK NOOK is always replenished and kept tidy by the volunteers. Everyone notices the beautiful gardens that surround the library, but did you know we also have an herb garden and a children’s garden? Our gardeners are volunteers. We appreciate them so much. Thank you friends!

The Brown County Public Library has a branch library next to the Cordry-Sweetwater Clubhouse. This branch is opened for a few hours three days a week. This branch library is staffed by volunteers. Their help is greatly appreciated. You will find the branch hours on the back of our information pamphlet available at the library desk.

New volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested in volunteering please feel free to pick up an application at the desk.
