The annual Lights Out at the library is coming soon. The MPL would like to give a candy bar to every trick-or-treater who attends the program, and the public’s help is needed. If you would like to donate regular size candy bars for the children, please bring them to the adult circulation desk. We expect to have over 300 visitors this year. Call 574-658-4312 for information.
Have you decided what you are going to do with all the great pictures you took this summer? Start a scrapbook.
