Here at La Porte Community Library we will have many interesting, informative and fun programs throughout the summer. To keep up with all that is going on check out our events calendar or pick up a summer flyer when you come to the library. Let's make this the best summer ever!

LA PORTE FILM COMMITTEE POSTS SRP VIDEO

If you want to see an example of the talent of our La Porte Film Committee, take a look at their Summer Reading Video which is posted on this youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY6V1Y6wh0Q . For the past 6 years a small group of dedicated young people have assisted our children's librarians with the creation and filming of a short video to promote the Summer Reading Program. Each of the 26 branches receive a copy to use as the librarians make school visits. Our Friends of La Porte Library have graciously provided the funding for cameras, sound equipment and costuming. We at La Porte Community Library are very proud of our talented children and librarians.
