Great programs, activities, and entertainment options are just a few reasons why Tipp City Public Library is the best place to relax this summer.


Gene Davis, of Tipp City, has been rock hounding and mining since 1985. He has collected some of the most beautiful gems in America, and wrapped them in silver to assemble his beautiful creations. Hear about his work and experiences at “Gemstones in Silver”, the library’s next brown bag lunch program set for noon on Tuesday, July 20.

Bring your lunch, and the library will provide refreshments.

Teens and children are invited to try their luck at two games during July 19 – 24.

The game for teens is “Rock Your Vote”. Visit and cast your vote for the best tunes for summer listening. A selection of the top songs will be burned to a CD, and played at the teen’s summer reading club party in August.

Children are invited to make a guess on how many bubbles are in the bowl at the reading club table. The best guesser wins a prize.
