Kewanna-Union Township Public Library

Our Mission:

The Kewanna Union Township Public Library is the center of community life, offering opportunities for people to learn, grow, and succeed.


Tom Johnson will be sharing his love of railroads on Wed., May 1 @ 11:00 in Kewanna Public Library. 

A rail line that’s been shut down for about the last half century is still very much alive in Tom Johnson’s imagination and home.  Tom’s Cass Co. Railroad layout features a fictional yet reality-based northern Indiana Shortline of the 80’s.  It’s not a surprise that Tom is a former art teacher, what with the realistic scenery that he has created.   Join us for a unique opportunity to step back in time!

Nancy Hudson, Purdue Extension/Fulton County HHS Educator, will be presenting “Tea Time” on Wednesday, April 17 @ 11:00.  This program will take place in Kewanna Public Library.  The library is located at 210 E. Main St., Kewanna, IN.

Tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world.  But how many of us know what goes into making that soothing cup of tea or the antioxidants that are in it?  During this program, you will learn about various types of tea, such as white, green, oolong, black, and herbal: how to brew tea; choosing between loose tea and tea bags; and tea traditions and etiquette.  Join me in this class, as we brew a cup of hot tea and examine the whimsical world of tea parties, relaxation, and tea traditions that go back for decades.

Shirley Willard, Fulton County Historian, will share information about the early inhabitants of Indiana, the Native Americans.  Shirley will be presenting her program on Wed., April 24 @ 11:00 in Kewanna Public Library.  Kewanna Public Library is located at 210 E. Main St., Kewanna, IN.

Shirley, a past president of the Fulton County Historical Society, spearheaded the building of the Fulton County Museum, Round Barn Museum and Living History Village called Loyal, Indiana.  She is a writer and has published books and newsletters for the FCHS.  Shirley is a well-known speaker about the history of Fulton County.

Libraries strengthen their communities: celebrate National Library Week April 7-13

This week, the Kewanna Public Library joins libraries of all types in celebrating the many ways libraries build strong communities by providing critical resources, programs and expertise.

April 7-13, 2019 is National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. Libraries are at the heart of their cities, towns, schools and campuses. They have public spaces where people of all backgrounds can come together and connect.

Kewanna Public Library is celebrating National Library Week by having a Community Art Show April 2-18 along with their regular weekly programs.
