Indiana Free Library offers weekly programs | News

The Indiana Free Library’s summer newsletter is currently in production and library officials are excited to offer the public an upcoming full summer of activities.

Several new programs are coming to the library including a new Coding Club to supplement your love for coding in between Code Brave sessions. The new coding club will meet in the library beginning in June.

The “Oceans of Possibilities” summer reading event will kick off June 13 with a kick-off pool party at Mack Park. Registration is required for this event, so please go to www.indi for more information.

A new program for teens this summer is Teen Tech Time, where participants will share/review their favorite video games, learn new skills like video/audio editing and video game design, and complete fun projects such as stop-motion animation, podcasts, music videos and more.
