Ideal size: Tiffany Eggers, who brought her children, Peaches, 3 (with backpack); and Eli, 1, to the Fortville-Vernon Township Library this week, says the facility is great for moms with kids. 'It's much smaller,' she said.
Friendly confines: Assistant librarian Tifarah McMullin re-shelves the latest returned books at the Fortville-Vernon Township Public Library. At 8,000 square feet, the library in Fortville is one-fifth the size of the main branch of the Hancock County Public Library. HCPL officials say an increasing number of people in the Vernon Township library's service area are asking for more programming and materials that only the bigger library can provide.

The library’s board of trustees this week approved a capital improvement plan, detailing potential future projects and the expenses associated with each one – not the least of which is a new branch, located in McCordsville.
