County libraries to host Bicentennial “ALL-IN Block Party” Oct. 6

Call-out for community groups participation
Comet staff report

The Delphi Public Library, Flora-Monroe Public Library and Camden-Jackson Public Library will join together to host an “ALL-IN Block Party” this fall to celebrate Indiana’s Bicentennial.

“ALL-IN” is a collaborative event which encourages Hoosiers of all ages to complete challenges, such as trying a new food, sharing an inspirational quote or competing in a quiz show. The program goal is to inspire Hoosiers to learn more about the state, connect with each other and make Indiana even better.

The Block Party will be held at the Wabash & Erie Canal Center Oct. 6, in conjunction with the Carroll County leg of the Bicentennial Torch Relay. Community organizations are needed to facilitate fun, interactive activities with materials provided by the libraries and Indiana Humanities. Indiana Humanities connects people, opens minds and enriches lives by creating and facilitating programs to encourage people to think, read and talk.

Local participating groups will be encouraged to provide information about their organizations and highlight their services to the community.

“We’re looking forward to bringing the entire community together for this celebration,” said Delphi Public Library Director Kelly Currie. “If your organization wants to be a part of welcoming the torch and promoting your organization and Indiana, please let us know.”

Interested groups should contact the Delphi Public Library at kelly@delphilibrary.org or (765) 564-2929 for information.
