The Library is working with Green Hat Productions on a new library website. The new website will be more user friendly for our customers. Our goal is have the new website live by this Christmas.
One of the important roles of the library does is ti partner when it can with other organizations in our community. Partnering with others is an crucial element for public libraries to serve our community and customers well and provide opportunities to experience. A prime example is the Martha Jones Indiana Author Series. The library has partnered with the Wabash Round Table and the Honeywell Center to bring three Indiana authors to Wabash this Fall. The library thanks the Wabash Round Table and the Honeywell House (Honeywell Foundation) for this opportunity to partner!

As in any year, the library is continuing to work on projects to make our libraries better for our patrons. Some of the projects include taking care of moisture concerns with current building and finalizing that before any decision on expansion. The other main project is looking to make it possible for patrons to use debit or credit cards to pay for fines, overdue fees, replacement costs, and non-resident borrower’s card. We will try to keep informed as progress is made in these areas. Thank you for your support and patronage!
