  • ComicFest on Oct. 31, is a one-day event for comic book lovers. Library customers of all ages will receive a free comic book, one per customer and while supplies last. This event helps to promote the library's downloadable comic books available from hoopla.
  • Block Party is Nov. 2, from 3:30-4:30. Katie Zuber, health and human sciences Purdue extension educator, brings blocks of various shapes and sizes for children aged 18 months through 8 years for free block play. Block play provides fun and interactive experiences that support learning and social as well as physical development. Block play also encourages the development of math and science skills. Adult caregivers can guide the children's early learning experiences and use blocks as the tools to support their development. For more information, call Zuber at (812) 275-4623 or emailĀ

Crafts, science

Pumpkin crafts continue through Monday, then scarecrow crafts begin on Tuesday.

Children can discover the properties of light by using a small machine that spins a color wheel. When the wheel spins, the colors turn to white. A display also illustrates how a triangular glass prism breaks white light into the colors of the rainbow.
