Annual Holiday Book Drive
Make sure your holiday shopping includes a trip to the Nappanee Public Library, where you can give the gift of reading to local children in need.
A selection of exceptional books for children of all ages will be on display and ready for donation Nov. 17 through Dec. 14. Priced at a substantial discount, titles are given to Nappanee’s Open Door food pantry for distribution with Christmas Baskets. This year donors will have the chance to give in one of two ways: either purchase a book for donation, or contribute a donation toward the book fund.
Don’t miss this chance to add a little joy to a local child’s holiday season. For more information, call the library at (574) 773-7919, or go to www.nappaneelibrary.org.
Library Tour Offered
Did you know you could check out a portable opaque projector or die cut machine at the Nappanee Public Library? How about craft patterns or jigsaw puzzles? There are more than books at the Library! New cardholders and those interested in learning more about the Library are invited to a guided tour of the Nappanee Public Library at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 17.
In addition to discovering where to find current bestsellers, a favorite cookbook, or the daily news, participants will be introduced to many special services. These include the Library’s online catalog, eMedia, computers and copiers for use in the library; framed original art, CD’s, DVD’s and many other materials for loan.
The library, located at 157 N. Main St., holds the tour the third Monday of every month and by appointment.

Book Club Discusses Coelho Novel
Read along with the Cover to Cover Book Club at the Nappanee Public Library. The club will meet from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, to discuss “Manuscript Found in Accra,” by Paul Coelho.
This latest novel by the best-selling author consists of a series of queries posed by a population under siege and the powerfully simple, yet evocative, answers provided by an essentially unidentified wise man. The sublime Coelho continues to break stylistic boundaries with this series of spiritual musings grounded more in history and morality than in his trademark brand of mysticism.
For more information or to reserve a copy of the book, call the library or visit the website. The Cover to Cover Book Club meets at the library on the third Tuesday of each month.
3-D Printer Training
Nappanee Public Library cardholders with an interest in the maker movement, engineering, drafting, crafting, and other techno-creative endeavors are invited to become certified on the Library’s new Makerbot 3-D printer.
The next training session takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20.
Learn how to program, run and troubleshoot projects on the machine and become certified to use it independently.
Register by Monday, Nov. 17 by calling the library or visiting the website.
