Library Expanding into Historic Building

(La Porte, IN) - A new library facility in downtown La Porte is scheduled for a grand opening celebration soon. The facility, called the Exchange, is located at 807 Indiana Avenue.


The newly remodeled facility contains the library’s Career Tech Education program featuring items like 3D printers and laser cutters for the public to use. In addition, the library’s print and faxing services are also inside the newly renovated structure.


The building used to house a telephone company with switchboard operators connecting calls but went out of business a half-century ago as technology made its services obsolete.  The brick exterior structure was vacant for many years until the library decided to expand into the facility after a $2.7 million renovation. 


The grand opening celebration is scheduled for October 4 from 5-8 PM.
