Story Hour

Library’s Reading Garden Project

As a part of the continued development of the library’s new reading garden, the library board is offering patrons an opportunity to purchase an inscribed paver brick to serve as a memorial for an individual, family or business.

Many bricks have been purchased so far and yours would certainly add to the area. These bricks may be inscribed with up to four lines. Each line will contain up to 12 spaces (including blanks). A paver brick may be purchased for $100 each, and these bricks will be incorporated in the walkway throughout the outdoor area.

These paver bricks will certainly serve as a wonderful and lasting memorial. Contact Library Director Stephen Boggs if you are interested in purchasing a memorial paver brick. He can be reached at 574-353-7234 or Forms for the pavers are available on the library’s website at
