The La Porte County Historical Society is proud to announce the donation of books on historic La Porte County to 22 public and private schools in La Porte County with grades 8 through 12. The books donated include Michigan City Illustrated 1900; A Twentieth Century Historical and Biographical Record of La Porte County Indiana 1904; and the 1874, 1907, and 1921 Combined Atlases and 1892 Plat Book of La Porte County Indiana.
The books were presented to the principals and librarians by Museum Director Keri Teller Jakubowski and Board Member Susan Bukowski. An invitation was extended to the school's students to use the Fern Eddy Schultz Research Library at the Museum for their research projects. This school outreach program was designed to generate interest in the younger generation in La Porte County history, and to remind school administrators that the Historical Society and Museum is a valuable resource for their students.
For information on school tours, summer internships, and research help, please contact Museum Director Keri Teller Jakubowski by phone 219-324-6767 or email email@example.com. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and is located at 2405 Indiana Avenue, La Porte.
