Furthermore, in order to keep the library grounds attractive and litter free, a large trash recepticle will be placed near the library entrance for any trash. Please help keep the library grounds tidy and clean. These new improvements are being made possible from Capital Projects funds.
Library Card Sign-up Month
With school in full swing, what better place to visit than the library to celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month? Any child kindergarten age or older may receive their own personal card. Remember: The library only issues family accounts, meaning parents and children share one card number.
If you are 18 years or older and are interested in setting up a CPL account please present proof of address and a staff member will be happy to help you. To be eligible for a library card, you must live in Smith or Union Township. Green Township residents are also eligible to become members of the Churubusco Public Library if they have a valid Noble County Library card. New patrons may only check out three items at a time for the first three months starting the day their card is issued. Just a reminder, when checking out any library material we ask that you please have your library card available. Without it you will not be able to check out.
New Discovery Box
The library has received a new Discovery Box! This interactive kit for children includes a variety of fun activities, books, and biofacts, all surrounding the interesting topic of animal body coverings.
