Latest News From Your Library

The Future of KPL - Surveys

   On October 10, 2023 the Kendallville Public Library Board of Trustees moved to proceed with the goal of updating and repairing the Kendallville Public Library (est. 2007) and its Limberlost Branch (est. 1997). These already beautiful facilities are due for maintenance and updates to meet the needs of our communities. Please help us invest in the future by taking these two short surveys, so that in the next fifteen to twenty years we can offer even better services and functionality that we can all be proud of. 

The Future of Limberlost - Survey


The Future of KPL - Survey


Kendallville Public Library and Limberlost Branch patrons will find a more user-friendly browsing experience through a new catalog feature called Aspen Discovery. You can find Aspen here.

Like a traditional catalog, patrons can search for material by titles, keywords, authors and more. With Aspen, patrons will see new enhanced search tools that make it easier to find the items you are seeking and find inspiration for new check outs. On the catalog’s main page, patrons can browse categories such as new items and New York Times Best Sellers. Categories can also reflect unique collections such as magazines, book club kits, Legos and more. With Aspen, electronic materials will look a bit different but will be easier to browse and checkout in Libby or Hoopla.

Once patrons find the material of choice, you can place items on hold, find it on the shelf or even check out an electronic item straight to your device. Holds are easy to modify before they are ready for pick up too. Patrons have the option to freeze (which keeps your place in line) and thaw when you are ready to move in the queue. Patrons can also change the pickup location or cancel pending holds.

Now, the big question. Will the switch affect my current Evergreen account settings? All your current checkouts, holds, and reading history will still be available when you log in to our new catalog. You will also be able to see your checkouts on Libby and Hoopla from your profile. It will even be easier to log in, just sign in with your library card barcode and PIN. If you need your PIN, you can reset it online. If you do not have an email associated with your account, please see a staff member at circulation.
You may direct questions and observations to aspen@kenlib.org or Assistant Director, Brittany Leath at bleath@kenlib.org.

Thank you to our READ Donors!

The last time we conducted our READ (Reading, Education and Discovery) fundraising campaign was back in 2020. Then, we began the letter to supporters with “The Kendallville Public Library is engaging with the community like never before.” Little did we know then how even more true that would be now!

Every day we strive to bring new initiatives to our community to improve the quality of life for those around us. We’re partnering with local organizations to deepen the impact we have on the people we serve. We live here, we work here, and we are doing all we can to help the area thrive.

Our donors have recognized the work we are doing, and really came through this year. So far we have received donations totalling $3,175 earmarked to a variety of programs at the Kendallville Public Library. THANK YOU!

Take a Trip to the ACD Museum!

In addition to passes to Science Central and the Botanical Conservatory, KPL has added a Family Pass to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn. This pass is good for up to 2 adults at the same address and their dependent children.

In the museum, most of the cars are drivable and many are in carefully-restored condition.  The museum has a state-of-the-art Collections Conservation Center that was completed in 2015 to support the care and preservation of this priceless collection.

Plan your visit at https://automobilemuseum.org/ and reserve the pass here.

Looking for a Notary? Look no further!

The Kendallville Public Library now has Notary Service available.

A Notary Public is an individual commissioned by the State of Indiana to serve as an impartial witness and fraud deterrent for legally significant documents such as property deeds, marriage licenses and adoption papers. Notaries defer fraud by verifying individuals’ identity and ensuring that all parties understand the contents of the documents they sign.

Schedule an appointment with Notary Michelle Herron by calling 343-2010 or emailing her at mherron@kendallvillelibrary.org. There is no cost for this service.

Michelle Herron is not an attorney licensed to practice law in Indiana. She is not allowed to draft legal records, give advice on legal matters, including immigration or charge a fee for these activities.
