Dancing Through the Summer

We're hosting a Dance Camp for ages 6-12 this July!

In this three-part series, kids will learn about shape, action, and energy and how those ideas can be turned into a dance that they will help create.

Melli Hoppe, a dancer and instructor from Indiana’s Arts for Learning, will be leading this camp.

Summer Book Club for Kids & Tweens

Ghost. Lu. Patina. Sunny. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds – but also four kids chosen for a middle school track team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics.

That's the premise of "Ghost" by Jason Reynolds, the book we're reading for our June Kids & Tween Summer Book Club.

West Central Librarian Alicia Cotner will lead elementary-aged kids in a discussion of the book on Monday, June 20th at 4:00.

Free copies of the book are available at the library for all interested families. Stop in to pick up your copy!

New Digital Service - Kanopy!

We’re excited to announce our newest digital service—Kanopy!  Kanopy lets you stream a huge selection of movies and tv shows with your library card.

The collection contains over 30,000 titles that inspire, entertain, and enrich.

Kanopy is open to all resident Pulaski County Public Library cardholders.  You can check out 10 items per month with your library card.  Checkouts replenish at the start of the next calendar month.

Drawing for Kids

UPDATE: Unfortunately, our presenter Gary Gee has cancelled the Drawing For Kids programs that were scheduled for this Wednesday in Winamac and Medaryville.

Percussion Camp

We’re excited to announce our Percussion Camp this June for kids ages 6-12!

In our “Drumming: Two Ways” three-part day camp, led by instructors from Indiana’s Arts for Learning, kids will be introduced to two very different styles of drumming: hand-drumming and found object percussion.

The camp will take place on three Wednesdays in June: June 15th, 22nd, and 29th. You can choose either the 11:00 camp at the library in Winamac or the 2:00 camp at the West Side Center in Medaryville. You must be able to attend all three sessions to participate.

Call of the Wild

Local outdoor skills instructor Jim Conley will teach kids skills featured in the world's best outdoor-themed books at this program.

Kids will learn how to make a Survival Shelter like in Hatchet, how to set a survival trap like Katniss from The Hunger Games, how to tie Buck's #1 Call of the Wild rescue knot, and so much more.

This program is for kids ages 8 to 12.  A program will be held at the West Side Center in Medaryville on June 1st from 2:00 to 4:00, and another will be held at the Pulaski County Public Library in Winamac on Saturday, June 11th from 10:00 to noon.

Summer Reading 2022

Our kids' Summer Reading program is underway at the library!

Summer Reading is for children ages 3–18.  This year's program runs from May 23rd to July 2nd, and registration is ongoing throughout the program.

Participants will earn one prize every week during Summer Reading!  They will also get to add their name to the bucket each week for our grand prize drawing of a new bicycle!

This year, we are focusing on fostering an appreciation for reading.  Summer Reading is not about how many books you check out – it’s about discovering and reading books you enjoy.

New Presentation System in Computer Lab

The library has installed a new presentation system in its computer lab.

The first thing you'll likely notice is the large 75" monitor on the back wall of the lab.  This monitor will be used to present materials and share the instructor's screen for classes held in the lab.

The new system also features a microphone and camera, which can be used for programs that feature a live, virtual component.

Field Guide Giveaway

Learn about local birds or mushrooms by picking up a free Field Guide the week of May 16th - while supplies last!

Available titles include “Birds of Indiana”, “Mushrooms of the Upper Midwest”, and “Birds of Prey of the Midwest”.

Participants will be asked to share either a photo of something they discovered or information they learned with the help of the field guide.

Copies are limited to one per family and are available first come, first served.  Stop in to learn more!
