There are plenty of things to do this month, in Jasper County and at your Library!

From the Little Cousin Jasper Festival in Rensselaer (Sept. 6-8) and the Sandhill Festival and Car Show in Wheatfield (Sept. 21) to the National Library Card Month and Banned Books week celebrations at the library (all month long), you can get out, see some entertainment, read some new books and maybe make some new friends.



 

Whether you are looking forward to cooler weather, or revelling in the hottest days of the year, the month of August holds plenty to do. Visit the state fair or get those last vacation days in, just be sure to stop by the library to grab a cool book in some cool air conditioning for those hot hot days.



 

Summer Reading continues this month with movies and crafts and programs for all ages. The fair happens July 13-19, and for many Jasper County kids and teens, the fair will be their home away from home for that week.

In between all that busy time, read on for some cool links including a video about fireworks, a facebook app featuring Minions, and much much more!



 

Preschoolers who enjoy attending the Jasper County Fair are invited to take a break and hear stories and participate in other age appropriate activities during “Story Time at the Fair,” offered by the Children’s Department of the Jasper County Public Library.



 

This year, reading isn't just a fun way to explore new worlds or earn fun prizes. This year, some lucky patrons will be able to SLIME A LIBRARIAN at the end of summer reading.

Snow and ice aren't the only things January is known for. January is named after Janus, the Roman god of beginnings, gates, doorways and time. He is often depicted as having two faces, one looking at the past and one into the future.



 

When we think of December, we think of it as the holiday season. Though most Americans are familiar with Christmas, there are several other holidays that take place in this winter month. Read on for links to learn more about them.
