East Chicago Public Library to Host The Black Experience Program

The East Chicago Public Library will wrap up a month long celebration of events and activities with a program titled, “The Black Experience,” on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 5pm at the Main Library located at 2401 E. Columbus Dr. The event will focus on the history and culture of blacks in East Chicago that have made a lasting impact in the area. The program will feature poetry, music, dance and song from local talent in an effort to give an all-around experience of the Black community. There will be guest performances as well as a spotlight to honor the achievements of some of East Chicago’s most prestigious local leaders. The goal is to remember the past, examine the present and look to the future with hopes that the ongoing legacies will be embraced and remembered. The event is free and open to the public.

Guests are also invited to tour the Black History exhibit in the John C. Templeton Gallery, which is housed in the Main Library.  Featured in the exhibit are many of East Chicago’s black leaders and influences, including a list of the “first blacks” and their accomplishments in East Chicago. The exhibit also contains many historical photos memorabilia that represent the well-rounded black culture.  The exhibit can be viewed throughout February during regular library hours.

Black History Month is an integral part of the African American community. It is a time to reflect on the hard fought progress of powerful historians and exemplary leaders.

 The East Chicago Public Library System is committed to meeting the diverse needs of its patrons and all of East Chicago's citizens through the exemplary provision of a full range of high quality informational, educational and recreational materials, services, and resources.

Safe Visitor Management System

In our continuing effort to improve the Safety and Security of our School City of East Chicago Facilities, the Safe Visitor Management System will be installed at all of our School  Properties over the next few months beginning at Central High School on or about March 1, 2018.

This system will require that each Visitor entering a School City of East Chicago Student Campus provide School Officials with a valid form of ‘photo’ identification that will be scanned into an Electronic Visitor’s Log and will be immediately checked against the National Sex Offender Registry to ensure everyone entering our schools poses no known threat to our students.
