WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?
As the library marks our twentieth year in this location, we turn to thoughts of scheduling computer classes and purchasing new material with funds available through the Hatchie River Regional Library.
What do you want?
We always try to purchase new books from popular authors, but we are very happy to take suggestions. Remember that this is your library and we do want to provide our public with great selections.
CAN'T FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR?
We might be able to borrow what you want from another library. Ask about this at the circulation desk.
WHAT IS THE BROWN BOOK CLUB READING?
The Brown Bag Book Club will meet on Wednesday, July 10, at 12:00 Noon for our discussion of
the book, An Irish Country Doctor, by Patrick Taylor. August's book will be Dossie Bell is Dead by local author, Jack Boone. This book was originally published in 1939 and is set in the Hurst Nation area of Chester County. It has recently been republished thanks to the efforts of John Talbott, Attorney at Law. Join us!
IT'S MIDDLE SCHOOL BOOK CLUB!
Since 2004, our library has offered a Middle School Book Club for children who have finished third grade through fifth grade. So far in 2019, the book club has read Mr. Popper's Penguins, Sounder, Who Was Neil Armstrong?, and their last book for the summer will be Holes by Louis Sachar. The group plans a pizza party at our last meeting, which will be courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
