Library Events & Programs
We often take pictures or shoot videos at library events to use in library publicity materials and on our website. Please view our policy.
Adults are invited to check out books, magazines, audio books or e-books at the Wheatfield Library this summer, where the theme for the Adult Reading Program is ‘Exercise Your Mind: READ!’ Every item that you check out earns you an entry in a drawing for weekly prizes. Held June 6-July 30, Exercise Your Mind, READ Adult Reading Program is free and requires no registration to participate.
All three branches of the Jasper County Public Library are launching “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten,” a program that encourages children ages 0 through preschool to discover the love of reading. To participate, parents are invited to come to any branch of JCPL and pick up a special binder with a reading log and begin reading and recording each title read.
For every 100 books read and recorded in the reading binder, children are invited to bring their favorite book to the library and be photographed with it, adding their photo to the library’s “1,000 Book Wall.” Reading 500 books makes children eligible to receive a tote bag and when they reach 1,000 books read, they are invited to choose a book to take home.
The Jasper County Public Libraries, located in Rensselaer, DeMotte and Wheatfield, will be closed on Monday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day. All three libraries will resume normal business hours on Tuesday.
Arrive early with your record sheet and get your tickets filled out and your coupon prizes collected.
