Fancy Nancy Fall Fête

The library is about to get fancy. Fancy Nancy that is. Girls and Boys are invited to dress in their fanciest attire and join us for a Fancy Nancy Fall Fête (that’s a fancy word for party) on Saturday, November 18 from 10:30am to 12:00pm. There will be stories, snacks, crafts and fabulous fun! Space is limited, so registration is necessary. You can come in and sign-up starting Wednesday, October 4. Give us a call at (765)884-1720 for more information. And don’t forget to like us on Facebook: Benton County Public Library and follow us on Instagram: bentoncounty_library

Hello, I’m Jack the Pumpkin!

Guess my weight and take me home with you for Halloween!! You get one guess PER VISIT (so, you can guess multiple times). All ages may participate (not just for the kiddos) (grown-ups love pumpkins, too). The last chance to enter is October 14th, so visit the library often and make your guess. But please don’t pick me up, we want to keep it fair. The winner will be announced on October 16th!

Upcoming programs preview…
