Library board meets in Seymour


Head of youth services Lola Snyder gave a report about the summer learning program when the Jackson County Public Library board of trustees met Monday at the Seymour Library.

The “Libraries Rock!” summer learning program is online and in the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries Friday through July 31 and on the Discovery Bus starting June 4.

Summer learning program participants of all ages will receive a bag, a record of activities and a limited supply of coupons when registering. They also will receive grand prize drawing entries for completing three things in each box of their record. Grand prize drawings include gift cards and certificates from local businesses, a karaoke microphone and other music-related items.

Starting at 8:30 a.m. Friday, registration is at

Family Fun Days co-sponsored by Jackson County United Way with bouncy houses, face painting, popcorn, games and more will be at the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries June 4, 6 and 9, respectively. Community agencies will have booths and activities for all ages.

After Snyder’s report, the board approved personnel changes and circulation policy changes, including music CDs checking out for 21 days instead of 14 due to participation in the Evergreen Indiana music transit pilot program where library users can request music from other libraries in the pilot. They also declared surplus for two magazine shelving units and a microfilm scanner with printer and stand.

The next board meeting is at 5 p.m. June 18 at the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St.
