Kelly Ehinger, director of the Adams Public Library System, reported this week that hours are being reduced at the Decatur library.
According to Ehinger, the library board at its recent meeting discussed ways to ensure future financial sustainability while continuing to meet library standards and the community’s needs during times of reduced or stagnant revenues.
A suspicious package found next to a Decatur business Wednesday morning brought about a swift response from law enforcement officials and wounded up with an Indiana State Police Bomb Squad (EOD team) being called to investigate.
The package apparently was not a threat, however.
