Crown Point Community Library


The blog and online exhibit center for the Indiana Room.

The Indiana Room creates table top displays promoting programs, topics, and events related to Crown Point, Lake County, Indiana, and the greater library and museum world.  Not all display content can be made available on the website, but the text of the display can be found on the blog pages.  The blog pages are organized to allow discovery; please enjoy the variety of topics as they relate to our Hoosier narrative.
