The library was pleased to create an official Bicentennial Project. We invited random people to read a line from the Indiana State Poem, Indiana, at various places around Oakland City. The poem was authored by Arthur Mapes and has been placed into state code as the official poem of Indiana. We then merged the clips together to create our video, Oakland City Reads. We hope you enjoy.
Check out our Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project. Oakland City Reads: Indiana.
The poem and it’s history can also be found within Indiana Code
