Latest News From Your Library

The Future of KPL - Surveys

   On October 10, 2023 the Kendallville Public Library Board of Trustees moved to proceed with the goal of updating and repairing the Kendallville Public Library (est. 2007) and its Limberlost Branch (est. 1997). These already beautiful facilities are due for maintenance and updates to meet the needs of our communities. Please help us invest in the future by taking these two short surveys, so that in the next fifteen to twenty years we can offer even better services and functionality that we can all be proud of.

Thank you to our READ Donors!

The last time we conducted our READ (Reading, Education and Discovery) fundraising campaign was back in 2020. Then, we began the letter to supporters with “The Kendallville Public Library is engaging with the community like never before.” Little did we know then how even more true that would be now!

Every day we strive to bring new initiatives to our community to improve the quality of life for those around us. We’re partnering with local organizations to deepen the impact we have on the people we serve. We live here, we work here, and we are doing all we can to help the area thrive.

Our donors have recognized the work we are doing, and really came through this year. So far we have received donations totalling $3,175 earmarked to a variety of programs at the Kendallville Public Library. THANK YOU!

Take a Trip to the ACD Museum!

In addition to passes to Science Central and the Botanical Conservatory, KPL has added a Family Pass to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn. This pass is good for up to 2 adults at the same address and their dependent children.

In the museum, most of the cars are drivable and many are in carefully-restored condition.  The museum has a state-of-the-art Collections Conservation Center that was completed in 2015 to support the care and preservation of this priceless collection.

Plan your visit at https://automobilemuseum.org/ and reserve the pass here.

Looking for a Notary? Look no further!

The Kendallville Public Library now has Notary Service available.

A Notary Public is an individual commissioned by the State of Indiana to serve as an impartial witness and fraud deterrent for legally significant documents such as property deeds, marriage licenses and adoption papers. Notaries defer fraud by verifying individuals’ identity and ensuring that all parties understand the contents of the documents they sign.

Schedule an appointment with Notary Michelle Herron by calling 343-2010 or emailing her at mherron@kendallvillelibrary.org. There is no cost for this service.

Michelle Herron is not an attorney licensed to practice law in Indiana. She is not allowed to draft legal records, give advice on legal matters, including immigration or charge a fee for these activities.
