Throughout each year, the Delphi Public Library offers programs especially targeted for teenagers. The library has hosted movie and game nights, Girls Who Code, and many volunteering opportunities.


This month, on April 26, the library will be hosting a special robot building program. This is a very exciting event for those who love to get creative and build things. Jennifer Wilson, the Youth Librarian, is in charge of this event. She would be more than willing to provide more information about this program. Contact her at [email protected]


Every summer, the Delphi Public Library has a summer reading program. If you read a certain amount of books, you will receive prizes. Some of the prizes consist of coupons to restaurants, beach balls, tee-shirts, water guns, and a lot of other fun prizes.


This summer also brings up new events.They are doing a new series called  “A Year of Frankenstein.” Kelly Currie, director at the Delphi Public Library, stated, “This event focuses on science and literature and how they connect. This year is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, so we are doing some book discussion, art, and robotics programming.” If you really enjoy science, literature, or even both of them, this is an event for you.


The city of Delphi is fortunate to have a public library that lives up to its mission statement: “The library connects with its patrons and helps them connect with each other and with the world, provides a safe and welcoming environment full of resources for information and imagination, and responds to community needs in an ever-evolving world with creative service approaches.”
