In honor of our State’s bicentennial, all the public libraries in Indiana have been given a state park pass to check out to their patrons. Here at your Speedway Library, we are loaning the pass to our patrons for a week. Patrons can reserve the pass in advance and all reservations and checkouts are on a first come first serve basis. Indiana became a state on Dec. 11 1816 and our state park program was started in honor of Indiana’s centennial in 1916. So celebrate our state’s rich heritage and natural beauty with a visit to your favorite state park this year!

The library now has a collection of adult literacy books available for checkout. These are books for beginning adult readers and their tutors. They are high interest, contemporary stories with a low reading level.
You can find the adult literacy collection in the Reference Room. These books may be checked out five at a time for three weeks.
This collection is a result of the Long Range Planning Committee’s hard work and dedication.
