An Indiana Legal Help kiosk for tenants and renters facing eviction is now available at the Syracuse-Turkey Creek Township Public Library, connecting the Wawasee community and beyond with access to legal resources.
Indiana Legal Help kiosks provide a way for Hoosiers to easily access IndianaLegalHelp.org, an Indiana Bar Foundation program connecting Hoosiers to legal resources and services. Through the kiosk, you can access housing-related legal information and resources, including a calendar of eviction-focused legal help events scheduled in our area, and find free and low-cost legal help. The ADA-accessible kiosk also includes a printer and scanner.
To use the kiosk, visit the library during its regular hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and from noon until 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Additionally, the library opens from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays. The Indiana Legal Help Kiosk is made possible through a partnership between the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and the Indiana Bar Foundation.
For housing and other legal needs, you can always check out the legal resources available at IndianaLegalHelp.org.
As part of the Syracuse Public Library's mission of lifelong learning, the children's department recently added several new nonfiction sets to its collection.
Megan, SPL children's librarian, has been eager to expand the nonfiction section in the children's department to provide children with more updated books on various subjects. Nonfiction is fun like that -- it's constantly changing as humanity's knowledge expands.
These sets from ABDO will fulfill that goal! From sports to other cultures to science, there is something here for every child's interests.
Newly Available Nonfiction Sets
The “All Together Now” Teen Art Contest will hold its art open house from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, at the North Webster Community Public Library, 110 E. North St.
Teen artists, their families or guardians, their friends and the rest of the community are welcome to attend this event, which will showcase the young talent within the North Webster and Syracuse communities.
The Syracuse Public Library’s Rebekah Sceniak will perform live violin music while attendees browse the artwork and enjoy refreshments. Local artists will judge each of the pieces and award places first through third within each grade range. Winners will be announced at 7:30 p.m.
If you cannot attend the open house, all art pieces will be displayed at NWCPL from Jan. 16-27 and then at the Syracuse Public Library from Jan. 30-Feb. 10. At the end of these displays, teen artists can pick up their pieces from their home library, which they had listed on their entry forms.
This contest has been a partnership between the North Webster Community Public Library and the Syracuse Public Library. For information, contact Michelle Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org or Hanna Kunkel at email@example.com.
Have you ever wanted to write, draw, or underline in a library book -- to share your inner thoughts with other readers who just might pick up the book? Well, now is your chance!
The Syracuse Public Library's young adult services department is introducing NOTE-ABLE Books. These books allow library patrons to write thoughts, create drawings, or underline favorite passages. All notes and drawings must be kept G-rated.
NOTE-ABLE Books can be found in the Rosalyn Jones Room/YA space under the nonfiction books. These books will have "NOTE-ABLE" labeled on their spines. On the first page, there is also a label, describing it as a "NOTE-ABLE BOOK" and encouraging readers to write in it.
Do not write in any library book that does not have the "NOTE-ABLE" designation.
We hope this program will encourage readers to engage with books in new ways and spark different readings for their fellow readers.
