Tales from Tyson Library!

It’s almost Fall and Fall brings new programs and activities to the Tyson Library! First of all, our Teen Council and after school clubs are starting up again, so be sure to sign up. Also, on Saturday October 6th the Library is partnering with the Friendship State Bank for Piggy Bank Kids! which is a financial reading program at the library where elementary age students learn how to manage money. We have a Frankenstein county wide program sponsored from a grant from the Indiana Humanities. A book discussion will take place on Monday October 22nd with Nancy Durham, pick up your FREE copy of Frankenstein today along with a pamphlet of other activities in the community!

Our goal, in everything we do, based on the precept set forth by Mr. James Tyson, is to ‘Educate, Enlighten and Enrich”.  As we continue to evolve with the needs of our community, we welcome any input you have regarding programs, materials, or anything else we can do to serve our community and our community is YOU!
