Carnegie Centennial Celebration at La Porte County Public Library

The La Porte County Public Library is excited to announce the Carnegie Centennial Celebration happening on Friday, January 31 from 3:00pm – 6:00pm at the Main Library. Through the funds appropriated by the Carnegie Corporation and the donations of the local community, the construction and opening of the new La Porte Public Library took place in November of 1920. The classic, historic footprint of the original architecture still stands today at 904 Indiana Avenue and we will be celebrating this fantastic gift to the community throughout 2020.

Guests at the Carnegie Centennial Celebration will have the opportunity to experience fun hands-on make-n-takes in the LPCPL MakerLab, delve into history stored in the Indiana Room, dance like crazy at the Kid’s Zumba Dance Party, presented by Zumba Instructor Gail Beal, at 5:30pm in Youth Services, and so much more. Lights refreshments will be served while you stroll throughout the library learning about the many services that are offered.

This celebration is also a thank you to the community for helping us achieve Indiana Library Federation’s 2019 Outstanding Library of the Year

We hope to see you there!
