2nd 'Maker Tuesday' program scheduled for June 17 at PCPL

Additionally, Stephan has taught reading at Pueblo, Blackfeet and Navajo reservations in New Mexico and Montana until her retirement in 2013.
Meanwhile, o n Tuesday, June 24 at 5 p.m., DePauw theater professor Tim Good will offer "A Day in the Life of Putnam County," a story-making program for all ages.
Light refreshments will be served. These programs are free and open to the public.
The library also notes that its children's programs will be canceled for the week of June 16-21 due to the start of the Children's Library renovation. Children's programs will resume June 23 in the Kiwanis room.
