Description

Serving the community for more than one hundred years, the Ligonier Public Library is a tax supported facility available to all people of the community and dedicated to acquiring, organizing, and providing access to materials for information, education and entertainment; developing programs and services for all patrons; providing a center for cultural heritage; making available facilities and resources for community participation . It was one of 2,811 libraries that were built by Andrew Carnegie. The first library in Noble County to be built, it was completed in 1908. The library has experienced a gradual growth in both the book collection a nd the number of patrons that frequent it. Starting with 1,000 books, the collection has grown to over 31,000 different items with thousands of Evergreen Indiana patrons being served. Although book borrowing is still the major service, other services have become available to patrons. Among these are DVDs, CDs, interlibrary loans, painting and print loans, and computer access. In 1975, a new addition was added to the library which houses the adult fiction section, community room, and office.
