NORTH WEBSTER — The North Webster Community Public Library offers a free Homebound Delivery Program for residents unable to get to the library due to their health.
A homebound patron can select items from the library’s website, or the library staff can make selections based on the patron’s preferences. A volunteer then will deliver the materials and return to pick them up.
To qualify, patrons must be residents of Tippecanoe Township, unable to come to the library due to a disability or illness lasting six weeks or longer and have no one who can go to the library for them. Contact Adult Services Director Beth Smith at (574)-834-7122, ext. 205, or [email protected] for more information.
Sticking to an exercise routine is often easier when people walk or work out with a friend.
The library can be a walking buddy with free audio book and music downloads from the Libby App. Powered by OverDrive Digital Library, Libby App lets people download audio books or music for free onto their smartphone, tablet or computer so they can listen while walking, exercising, doing chores, driving or whatever they might do.
People can also download e-books, movies and magazines. Libby App is available from the App Store or Google Play. It is free to install with no subscription costs, in-app purchases or late fees. All people need is a library card.
The March Adult Craft Class will make a spring bunny pot during a virtual Zoom event at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 9.
To participate, stop by the circulation desk to register and pick up a craft kit. People will then be emailed a Zoom link with login information. The craft kits are free with all supplies and written instructions provided. A limited number of kits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Stop by the Check It Out Station and enter the March reading contest.
Throughout March, every time patrons read a book, listen to an audio book or watch a movie from the classic collection, they may enter the title along with their name and phone number in the drawing for a chance to win a prize.
The library offers free study rooms available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The rooms are furnished with a table and chairs and equipped with electrical outlets and free Wi-Fi. Patrons are asked to sign in at the circulation desk and then sign out when leaving. The study rooms are sanitized after each use.
In addition, work area areas are provided throughout the library equipped with table top electrical outlets and USB portals to accommodate laptop computers and mobile devices. The library also has public computers available for use. A library card is not required to access the public computers, but people will need to obtain a password from the circulation desk.
Printing and faxing services are also available for a small fee.
Those who still like to get their news from newspapers may catch up at the library where they will find the latest issues of local, regional and national newspapers.
The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Indianapolis Star, The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette, The Mail-Journal and Warsaw Times-Union are available at the library. A large assortment of magazines is also available.
