Book Processing Party & Round Table Discussion

9:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Event Details


The Professional Development Office of the Indiana State Library is thrilled to announce that we’ve been able to add almost 20 new book club kits to our collection!   

We hope to have these kits ready for circulation this fall, but in order to do that we’ll need YOUR help.  We’re looking for volunteers to help us process the books, which for us primarily means applying book covers.  This is a simple but time consuming process, so the more helping hands, the better.  We welcome volunteers from both public and school libraries.  NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.  We will teach you how to cover the books.

Lunch and snacks will be provided.  We will hold a Round Table discussion during lunch, for which you will earn 1 LEU.  Free parking will be available.  Near the end of the day we will take you on a short tour of the beautiful Indiana State Library!

Round Table Topic:  Summer Reading Wrap-Up / Back-to-School / Book Clubs.  (Discussion topics are flexible and can be adjusted to be more relevant pending the professional interests and responsibilities of our volunteers.)

When:  Thursday, July 27 from 9:30am-4:00pm EDT.  Please plan to attend the entire day.

Where:  Indiana State Library - 315 W. Ohio St., Indianapolis, IN 46204 (Enter through Ohio St. entrance.)

Lunch:  Will be provided, along with snacks throughout the day.  Please note any food allergies or dietary restrictions when signing up.

Parking:  FREE!  Park in the Senate Street Garage, which has entrances on New York St. and Senate Ave.  NOTE:  The garage says "Employees Only."  Please disregard this message.  Enter via either garage entrance (New York St. or Senate Ave.) and pull a ticket from the machine.  Bring the ticket into the library with you.  We will validate your parking before you leave for the day.
