As we celebrate Indiana's Bicentennial, we look back at the history of each LCPL community. Though each of these cities and towns has much in common - the library, for example - they all have their own unique histories.

LCPL is partnering with several of our communities' historical societies to celebrate the Bicentennial. Click the buttons below to explore the town or city of your choice!
