Interest payable by check mailed one business day prior to the interest payment date or by wire transfer to depositories on the interest payment date to the person or depository in whose name each Bond is registered with Old National Wealth Management (the "Registrar") on the fifteenth day immediately preceding such interest payment date; Maturing or subject to mandatory redemption on January 15 and July 15 beginning on January 15, 2021 through not later than January 15, 2039 on the dates and amounts as provided by the Library prior to the sale. As an alternative to PARITY®, bidders may submit a sealed bid or e-mail the bid electronically to the Library's municipal advisor at the address described above until the time and on the date identified in the notice given by, or on behalf of the Library, twenty four hours prior to the sale of the Bonds. Upon completion of the bidding procedures described herein, the results of the sealed, non-electronic bids received shall be compared to the electronic bids received by the Library. If a potential bidder has questions related to the Library, the financing or submission of bids, questions should be submitted by email to the addresses above no later than 11:30 a.m. (Indianapolis Time) on April 1, 2019. To the best of the Library's ability, all questions will be addressed by or on behalf of the Library and sent to potential bidders, including any bidders requesting 24 hours' notice of sale, no later than 5:00 p.m. (Indianapolis Time) on April 1, 2019. Additionally, upon request, the written responses will be emailed to any other interested bidder. Bidders should review this notice as well as the Preliminary Official Statement and submit any questions in advance of this deadline to submit questions. The Bonds are redeemable prior to maturity at the option of the Library, in whole or in part in such order of maturity as the Library shall direct and by lot within maturity, on or after July 15, 2029, at face value plus accrued interest to the date of redemption. A bid may designate that a given maturity or maturities shall constitute a term bond, and the semiannual amounts set forth in the schedule provided prior to the sale shall constitute the mandatory sinking fund redemption requirements for such term bond or bonds. For purposes of computing net interest cost, the mandatory redemption amounts shall be treated as maturing on the dates set forth in the schedule provided prior to the sale. In the case of any redemption, 30 days' notice will be given by mail to the registered owners of the Bonds to be redeemed, and accrued interest will be paid to the date fixed for redemption. Interest on the Bonds so called for redemption will cease on the redemption date fixed in said notice if funds are available at the place of redemption to redeem the Bonds so called on the date fixed in said notice, or thereafter when presented for payment. The Bonds have been designated as qualified tax exempt obligations for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Code. Each bid must be for all of the Bonds and must state the rate of interest which each maturity of the Bonds is to bear, stated in multiples of 1/100th or 1/8th of 1%. The maximum interest rate of the Bonds shall not exceed 5.0% per annum. All Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same rate, and the rate of interest bid for each maturity must be equal to or greater than the rate bid on the immediately preceding maturity. Bids shall set out the total amount of interest payable over the term of the Bonds and the net interest cost on the Bonds covered by the bid. No bid for less than 99.5% of the face value of the Bonds will be considered. The Bonds will be awarded to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder who has submitted a bid in accordance herewith (the "Purchaser"). The Purchaser will be the one who offers the lowest net interest cost to the Library, to be determined by computing the total interest on all of the Bonds to their maturities based upon the schedule provided by the Library prior to the sale and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount bid, if any. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If an acceptable bid is not received for the Bonds on the date of sale herein before fixed, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter, during which time no bids for more than the lowest bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered. No conditional bids will be considered. Each bid not submitted via PARITY® or by email must be enclosed in a sealed envelope addressed to the Library and marked on the outside "Princeton Public Library Bid for General Obligation Bonds of 2019". A good faith deposit ("Deposit") in the form of cash, wire transfer, or certified or cashier's check in the amount of $45,000 payable to the order of the Library is required to be submitted by the Purchaser not later than 3:30 p.m. (Indianapolis Time) on the next business day following the award. If such Deposit is not received by that time, the Library may reject the bid. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser. The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds. In the event the Purchaser fails to honor its accepted bid, the Deposit will be retained by the Library as liquidated damages. The Purchaser shall make payment for such Bonds and accept delivery thereof within five days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at such place in the City of Indianapolis, Indiana, as the Purchaser may designate, or at such other location mutually agreed to by the Library and the Purchaser. The Bonds will be ready for delivery within 45 days after the date of sale. If the Library fails to have the Bonds ready for delivery prior to the close of banking hours on the forty-fifth day after the date of sale, the Purchaser may secure the release of the bid upon request in writing, filed with the Library. The Purchaser is expected to apply to a securities depository registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to make such Bonds depository eligible. If the Bonds are re-offered, at the time of delivery of the Bonds to the Purchaser, the Purchaser will be required to certify to the Library the initial re-offering price to the public of a substantial amount of each maturity of the Bonds. All provisions of the bid form and Preliminary Official Statement (as hereinafter defined) are incorporated herein. As set forth in the Preliminary Official Statement, the Purchaser agrees by submission of their bid to assist the Library in establishing the issue price of the Bonds under the terms outlined therein and shall execute and deliver to the Library at closing an "issue price" certificate, together with the supporting pricing wires or equivalent communications, with such modifications as may be appropriate or necessary, in the reasonable judgment of the Purchaser, the Library and Ice Miller LLP ("Bond Counsel"). Bidders must comply with the rules of PARITY® ("Rules") in addition to requirements of this Notice. To the extent there is a conflict between the Rules and this Notice, this Notice shall control. Bidders may change and submit bids as many times as they wish during the sale, but they may not withdraw a submitted bid. The last bid submitted by a bidder prior to the deadline for the receipt of bids will be compared to all other final bids to determine the winning bid. During the sale, no bidder will see any other bidder's bid, nor will they see the status of their bid relative to other bids (e.g., whether their bid is a leading bid). It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by the successful bidder therefor to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its proposal. No CUSIP identification number shall be deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby and no liability shall hereafter attach to the Library or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds shall be paid for by the Library; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will also be responsible for any other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds. The approving opinion of Bond Counsel, together with a transcript of the proceedings relating to the issuance of the Bonds and closing papers in the usual form showing no litigation questioning the validity of the Bonds, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the Library. The Bonds are being issued for the purpose of renovation of and improvements to Princeton Public Library, and will be direct obligations of the Library payable out of ad valorem taxes to be collected on the taxable property within the Library; however, the Library's collection of the levy may be limited by operation of Indiana Code § 61.120.6, which provides taxpayers with tax credits for property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain percentages of the gross assessed value of that property. The Library is required by law to fully fund the payment of debt service on the Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due to the application of such tax credits. The Library may not be able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this short fall. The Library is a library organized pursuant to the provisions of Indiana Code § 36-12-3, and the Bonds will not be "private activity bonds" as defined in Section 141 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 as amended to the date hereof (the "Code"). The Bonds constitute an indebtedness only of the Library. In the opinion of Bond Counsel, under the existing federal statutes, decisions, regulations and rulings, the interest on the Bonds is exempt from all income taxation in Indiana. In the opinion of Bond Counsel, under the existing federal statutes, decisions, regulations and rulings, the interest on the Bonds is excusable from gross income for purposes of federal income taxation. The Library has prepared a Preliminary Official Statement (the "Preliminary Official Statement") relating to the Bonds which it has deemed nearly final. A copy of the Preliminary Official Statement may be obtained from the Library's municipal advisor, H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants, LLP, 8365 Keystone Crossing, Suite 300, Indianapolis, Indiana 462402687. Within seven (7) business days of the sale, the Library will provide the successful bidder with five (5) copies of the Final Official Statement (the "Final Official Statement") at the Library's expense in order for such bidder to comply with Section (b)(4) of the SEC Rule 15c2-12 and the rules of the Municipal Securities Rule making Board. Additional copies, at the Purchaser's expense, must be requested within five (5) business days of the sale. Inquiries concerning matters contained in the Preliminary Official Statement must be made and pricing and other information necessary to complete the Final Official Statement must be submitted by the Purchaser within two (2) business days following the sale to be included in the Final Official Statement. If the Bonds are re-offered, the Library agrees to enter into a master continuing disclosure undertaking (the "Master Agreement") in order to permit the Purchaser to comply with the SEC Rule 15(c)212, as amended to the date hereof. A copy of the Master Agreement is available from the Library or municipal advisor at the addresses below. The Library has further agreed to comply with the Purchaser's reasonable requests to provide or disclose information and make appropriate filings which may be required in order for such purchaser to comply with the SEC. Further information relative to said issue and a copy of the nearly final Preliminary Official Statement may be obtained upon application to H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants, LLP, 8365 Keystone Crossing, Suite 300, Indianapolis, Indiana 46240-2687, municipal advisor to the Library; or Brenda Williams, Director of the Library, 124 South Hart Street, Princeton, Indiana 47670. If bids are submitted by mail, they should be addressed to the Library, attention of the Director of the Library, c/o H.J. Umbaugh & Associates, Certified Public Accountants, LLP, 8365 Keystone Crossing, Suite 300, Indianapolis, Indiana 462402687. Dated this 11th day of March, 2019. /s/ Secretary, Board of Trustees Princeton Public Library
