On Friday, October 3 2014 all locations of the Allen County Public Library will be closed for Staff Training.  We’ll use this time to share ideas, receive in-depth training, and plan for the future.  We will return to our regular hours on the 4th–we look forward to seeing you then!

Saturday, September 27, 2:00 p.m.
Stop by the Jeffrey R. Krull Gallery at the Main Library for a reception honoring the children from all over Allen County who created art during the library’s Summer Reading Program Open Art events.  There will be light refreshments and an art making activity for all ages in the gallery.  We hope to see you there!
