We wanted to let everyone know that we are going to be closed Monday and Tuesday morning until 3:30 in the afternoon due to transitioning our library to a new library system and staff training. We will be opened normal hours the rest of the week. We will still be showing the movies for super hero week starting at 3:45 on these days.
Parke County Public Library is a great place to be. There are plenty of books for research and reading. We have many programs going on so be sure to check out our calendar and Programs page to see what events are coming up. We are also renovating sections of our library so that they will be more useful to the public. Feel free to stop in sometime and use our FREE WIFI. Check out our Ebooks & Audiobooks to get and read books on your tablets or phones.
