LEISING MEETS WITH LIBRARY REPS

LEISING MEETS WITH LIBRARY REPS

State Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg, center) meets with Greensburg-Decatur County Library’s board member Ashley Hungate (left) and library Director Vanessa Martin at the Statehouse. The group discussed Senate Bill 410, which would ensure that all Hoosiers have equal access to their local library and makes various updates to state laws on libraries, including requiring background checks for library employees and volunteers, and allowing libraries to issue free membership cards to foster children who live outside of their nearest library’s limits.
