PATHWAY TO KNOWLEDGE
The Pathway to Knowledge: Grounds for Learning Project complements the library’s mission for lifelong learning. This outdoor project provides hands-on, interactive natural educational experiences. The project includes our:
- Legacy Lane, which is a walkway (with engraved pavers–see below) around the library connecting our outdoor facilities;
- Kinder Garden, an outdoor children’s programming area;
- Courtyard, an outdoor area with tables and a decorative fountain, for relaxing, meeting people, and picnicking;
- Hoosier Native Garden, which borders Legacy Lane and features Indiana native plants and visiting wildlife; and
- Repose Meadow, a grassy area where patrons may toss a blanket to relax, read, meet, and picnic.
You may purchase an engraved paver to commemorate a loved one, friend, business, or organization. Pavers are permanently placed in our Legacy Lane outdoor pathway. Our promo trailer (video) below elaborates.

We also accept donations of books; DVDs; audiobooks; historical documents, photos and objects; video games; and other materials we circulate to the public. We no longer accept magazine or VHS videotape donations, however. Donations should be in very good condition–clean and properly functioning. Donated items may be added to our library collections, or they may be made available for sale by the Friends of the Library.
Our senior outreach programs especially need donations of the following books:
- Large print
- Western (fiction)
- Readers’ Digest
Please drop off your donated items at the library’s circulation desk. Thank you for your support!
