Thursday, January 25th at 5:00 p.m.

The Friends of the Library (FOTL) will kick off their Spring Program Series on Thursday evening at 5:00 p.m. at their Annual Meeting & Chautauqua Tea. The program will include the Kentucky Chautauqua presentation of Pee Wee Reese – Hall of Famer featuring Dick Usher, an exclusive presentation of the Kentucky Humanities Council, Inc. The presentation will be followed by the FOTL Annual Meeting. This event will be held in the Community Room at the Library. All are welcome to attend.

About the presentation: Harold Henry Reese got his famous nickname Pee Wee from a marble he used when he was a boy. The name fit because he turned out to be a man of modest stature, but by every measure one could apply to an athlete – teamwork, leadership, determination, winning, and grace under pressure – Pee Wee Reese was a giant. Learn about this baseball legend and see history come to life through Kentucky Chautauqua.

The Kentucky Humanities Council is an independent, non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Council is supported by the National Endowment and by private contributions. For information, visit or call 859-257-5932.
