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.
Come join us as we welcome Ginger Kolbaba, author of The Old-Fashioned Way, inspired by the motion picture, in a conversation about how to reclaim the lost art of romance (whether you're married or single!). She'll also talk about the movie and book connection. Don't miss this lively Q&A time!
Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on 28 September 1330. Nearly seven hundred years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty and Nicholas Flamel lives. Stop by the library and pick up your copy and join us to see what happens to the Book of Abraham the Mage . Contact Rachel Kuhn at 219-866-5881 with any questions.
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.
For more information, visit or call the Wheatfield Library at 956-3774.
