Drop in the Library the day after Independence Day to see a display of models of the USS Indiana, USS Indianapolis, and USS Indiana (BB58), WW2 warships created by the New Castle Prison Legion Post. These amazing models are created entirely out of popsicle sticks and matchsticks, using only fingernail files and clippers to build them. Stick around to see a naval war game from the Spanish American War.

After their showing at the library, the models will be donated to two American Legion Posts and to Gov. Holcomb's office in the State Capital. Learn more about the models here: https://youtu.be/CTWwcj4xnYI?t=10
