MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- The Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library has officially reopened their Heritage Room for the first time since March of 2020.

This part of the library was closed due to the pandemic over 18 months ago.

Monday was the first day library-goers were able to revisit the building’s official ‘Quite Zone’.

Staff members are excited to welcome back community members who enjoy this history-rich section of the library.

“We decided to make the Heritage Room the quiet area. So, there's some history in this room, and it's gorgeous, you'll see. But, it's also the quiet zone. It's self-sufficient. You walk around and see the historic cabinets and all of the signage that we have out,” said Judi Lykowski, Communications Manager at the Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Library.

A new exhibit has also been added to the Heritage Room that has enclosed artifacts which highlight five Mishawaka businesses that have shaped the city.
