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.
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 Rensselaer Library, 866-5881, the DeMotte Library, 987-2221, or the Wheatfield Library, 956-3774.

In the event that an active shooter was to enter your place of work, school, shopping or areas of recreation, would you be prepared? Exercising the options presented in this training may increase your chance of survival while awaiting the arrival of law enforcement. This program will Define the Active Shooter, Examine Current Trends, Data, and Early Warning Indicators; Recognize the Phases of the Active Shooter, Discuss Responsibilities of Management and of the Individual, Discuss Response Options and Strategies, and Provide General Information and Suggestions on Active Shooter Events.
Held on Monday, September 12th @ 10 am, this program is free and open to all ages.
