NORTH WEBSTER — Take a trip down memory lane and visit North Webster Community Public Library’s website where old North Webster High School yearbooks are available for viewing.
Yearbooks from 1948 through 1968 have been scanned and posted for page-by-page online browsing. In addition, Wawasee High School yearbooks from 1969 through 1999 are also posted. Visit www.nweb.lib.in.us, click on the Local History and Genealogy tab at the top of the home page, then click on North Webster High School Troy yearbooks in the right hand column. Hard copies of the yearbooks are also available for browsing inside the library’s Local History and Genealogy room along with a limited number of yearbooks from other area schools and colleges.
When winter weather forces you indoors, it can be a good time to clean out indoor clutter. If you have books you no longer want, the library accepts donations of good quality, gently used books. Donations are either added to the library’s collection or put in Friends of the Library book sales. However, not all donations are acceptable. The library does not accept books that are dirty, torn, stained, mildewed or moldy, with writing or highlighting or have a musty or smoky odor. Text books, workbooks, dictionaries, encyclopedias, magazines, cassette tapes, VHS tapes and music CDs are also not suitable for donation. Book donations can be brought to the circulation desk.
Due to Kosciusko County moving into the red metric for COVID-19 cases, the library has cancelled all in-house programs through January. Cancelled programs include Let’s Move dance/exercise class, adult craft class, Paws-to-Read and family movie. Let’s Move dance videos are posted on the library website for those who want to exercise at home. Kids can also still participate in L.O.F.T. via Zoom, and take home crafts are still available. The Stuffed Animal Sleep Away Camp will also take place.
The library will remain open 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
