Book Signing with K.V. Rider
Saturday, January 20th at 1:00 p.m.

On Saturday, January 20th at 1:00 p.m., local author K.V. Rider will visit the Library to sign copies of her book The Real Winner. Patrons can get to know the author and learn about her writing process.

About the author: K.V. Rider moved to a small town in Kentucky as a young girl. She always enjoyed writing for herself. Her desire to write a book, however, was temporarily set aside while raising her children. Eventually she began writing again, completing The Real Winner, a story of mystery, murder, and romance. She is currently working on the second book in the series. In addition to writing romance novels, Rider works as a paramedic and spends her free time with her husband and their family.


How to Make a Book Box
Saturday, January 20th at 2:00 p.m.

The Library will host "How to Make a Book Box" on Saturday, January 20th at 2:00 p.m. The program is part of the new "Protect Your History" monthly workshop series offered at the Library. Each month will feature a different method of protecting important items. 

In January, Mary Girard will show participants how to make a protective book box for their irreplaceable or fragile books, such as an heirloom Bible, scrapbook, or diary. At this hands-on workshop, each participant will make their own book box to take home. To ensure that enough supplies are available, registration is recommended. Call the Library to register. This event will be held in the Community Room.
