You Belong @ Your Library

National Library Week honors libraries, librarians, and library staff all across the country, and is celebrated the week of April 9-14.

This special event will be observed by the Jasper County Public Library located in Rensselaer, DeMotte and Wheatfield, with a Daily Prize Giveaway, during which prizes will randomly be given out to patrons each day of the week, and a Coloring Contest, open to ages 3-11.

To enter, pick up a coloring sheet at any branch of JCPL and return it by April 14. Coloring pages will be judged by age category.
