Check out the Greater Clark County Schools Art Show!

You may have noticed that the library just got a lot more colorful. That’s because the Greater Clark County Schools’ Art Show is on display in the main library through mid-May!

Artwork in the South display case

They will be hosting an opening reception on Thursday, April 6th from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the north program room in the main Jeffersonville location.

Artwork in the North display case

You can view the artwork in both the north and south display cases at the main library. Each student’s work has a color-coded label corresponding to their school:

  • Spring Hill Elementary:   Light green
  • Utica Elementary:   Hot pink
  • Wilson Elementary:   Pale yellow
  • Maple Elementary:   Lavender
  • Riverside Elementary:   Orange/peach
  • Northaven Elementary:   White
  • Thomas Jefferson Elementary:   Turquoise
  • Bridgepoint Elementary:   Gold/dark yellow

Check out a State Park Pass – again!

Due to the huge success of the program last year, the Indiana State Library and Indiana Department of Natural Resources have once again provided us with a free park pass to circulate to our patrons! And once again, we have purchased an additional pass so that one pass is available at each of our library locations. To learn more about the State Park Pass, check out the article featuring our library in the February 2016 edition of Programming Librarian.

We’re fortunate to have the Falls of the Ohio State Park and Charlestown State Park right in our backyard, but there are lots of other parks around the state to explore. Don’t forget to share your state park adventures with us on social media and at the library!
