Fairmount Public Library celebrates its 95th anniversary in 2016, Indiana’s Bicentennial year. The Library will feature Indiana author’s displays, including titles courtesy of an Indiana Humanities Next Indiana Bookshelf award. Quilt raffle tickets will be available to raise programming funds. In April, to kick off National Library week, Bloomington author Skila Brown will visit to read and discuss her works. The Library hopes to host an ALL-IN community challenge day. In May at the Library’s Open House, Grant County Historian Bill Munn will speak about Grant County during the 1920’s. Exploring Indiana will be the Summer Reading theme.
