The Block Party was a huge hit for the Otterbein community. Nearly 100 people participated in the ten different challenges set up at the street festival. Challenges included writing down an inspirational quote, testing your civic knowledge, declaring your Indiana-versary, and exploring another country’s music with a traditional folk dancing demonstration by Ruth Black. Completed scorecards were turned in to the library table and names went in to the drawing for an Ipad Mini. Justice Johnson was the winner of the Ipad Mini. The Otterbein Public Library was one of seven organizations in the state of Indiana to host a block party this year. Lauren would like to thank Indiana Humanities for accepting her grant application and looks forward to bring more interactive programs like this to our community.
