The Peabody Public Library will be closed on Friday, August 8th for staff in-service and training.
Our summer reading program is in full swing, with the theme of Fizz, Boom, Read! It's not too late to join in the fun, so be sure to stop by one of our friendly service desks for more information.
We will be closed on Sundays until Labor Day. Sunday hours of 1 - 5 PM will resume on Sunday, September 7.

Peabody Public Library and the Whitley County Historical Museum have teamed up to create a site on Indiana Memory. Our collection is named Historical Whitley County and holds pictures of the county, the library, Mr. Peabody and some of the artwork in the library. The collection will continue to grow, so please check back often.

A dream can start with a book, a literacy class, a lecture or access to a computer. Often it starts with asking a librarian a question . . ."Where would I find . . . and could you help me?"
Our staff is fortunate to have the opportunity to help people in our community pursue their dreams every day. Our dream is to make your library an even better place for you, your children and grandchildren.
We've created a new online Library WishList. Browse through colorful pages filled with books, volunteer opportunities and items we need for your library. It's fun!
Choose an item you'd like to see at the library, make a contribution towards the purchase (no amount is too small), or sponsor an item in memory of a loved one. When the "wish" is completed we'll let you know, and the next time you're in the library you can see the Wish you helped make come true.
Visit our Library WishList and help make a Wish come true.
Thank you so very much!!
