Speaking Topics


Technology can be tough to navigate but our team is here to guide you through the social media maze or how to edit digital photos. We’ll show you how to search for jobs and use the Internet safely. We can point you to great apps and teach you how to download our ebooks, eaudiobooks, or emagazines.

Genealogy and Local History

How did your family end up in La Porte county? Want to know if that old house next door is haunted? Wonder who your ancestors are? Genealogy and local history research resources are available in our collection. Our research staff can teach you how to use our resources to their fullest potential.

History, Travel, & Culture

Learn about presidential families, cryptozoology, folktales of Asia, or the stories behind brand names. Infuse a dreary winter day with some holiday cheer by learning about how Christmas is celebrated around the globe. Our presentations will open the door for you to experience the world.

Movies, Books, & More

The library is a great place for avid readers, movie enthusiasts, aspiring chefs, budding gardeners, and more because of our wide range of books, movies, games, and resources. Let us share with you the power of a library card, information on literacy, cookbooks, cinema, and more.

Parent & Caregiver Education

Helping a child learn to read is an important responsibility. We are happy to work with children of all ages to discover where their interests are and help them learn. We can help you choose the right books and get your child ready for a life of reading, learning, and exploring.
