Announcing the Launch of the Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium Book Club! 

 Hello! We’re excited to announce the launch of Evergreen Indiana Library Consortium Book Club! In this online community, you will connect with other library patrons and community members through the enjoyment of reading and discussing books related to lifelong learning, social issues, literature, psychology, and other user-submitted ideas.  There is no cost to participate – you just have to get a copy of the book from your preferred source.  Free ebooks are available for download for patrons of Evergreen Indiana public libraries; you may also borrow the book in print or audiobook from your local Evergreen Indiana library. You can sign up at http://www.pbc.guru/evergreenlibrary or keep reading to learn more. Sign-up by October 22th to join us for our first book selection, The book woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson.  About our first book The book woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele RichardsonBluet is the last of the Kentucky Blues—real-life people born with blue skin in the dusty hills of Troublesome Creek. In 1936, nearly twenty years old and blue-skinned, Bluet has used up her last chance for “respectability” and a marriage bed. Instead, she joins the historical Pack Horse Library Project and becomes a librarian, riding up treacherous mountains on a mule to deliver books and other reading materials to the poor hill communities. Along her dangerous route, Bluet confronts many who are distrustful of her blue skin. Not everyone is so keen on Bluet’s family or the library project, and the impoverished country folk are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town. Inspired by the real and historical blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the dedicated Pack Horse library service, Kim Michele Richardson provides an authentic Appalachian voice to a story of hope and heartbreak, raw courage and strength, and one woman’s chances beyond the dark woods of Troublesome Creek. How it works The book club will connect through a private online forum where members can discuss the current book and network with each other. The group will spend approximately two months on each book, so you’ll have plenty of time to read. You can sign up and learn more here: http://www.pbc.guru/evergreenlibraryWhy should you join? There are three main reasons we hope you’ll be excited to participate in our book club:

2020 Census

During the period when library locations are closed to the public, computers will not be available for public use. If you do not have access to a computer, you will be able to use a library computer when normal library operations resume. You can also wait for the Census Bureau to send you a paper form in mid-April. Librarians will be able to assist you with the paper form as well.
