Library News ~ October 1, 2015

Are you part of a book club? The Heyworth Public Library can help your group get the books you are wanting. Would you like to join a book club? We offer a Monday Evening Book Club every 4th Monday of the month from 6:30 p.m – 7:30 p.m. The group is always seeking new people to attend. Monthly attendance isn’t required, just let the group know when you CAN attend. So stop in and pick up your book, large print or audio book, and give our book club a try. Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson is this October’s offering. Copies are available at the circulation desk.

The Heyworth History Club is planning for the Third Randolph Township History Symposium, “History in Your Own Backyard”, and it is set for October 20th at 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Heyworth Public Library. Please bring along anything that you may be related to the history of our area. We are especially looking for information on older homes and businesses that were in our area and those still here. Other items might include pictures, artifacts, objects, maps, documents, stories, advertisement items, or family materials. We are hoping to continue each fall to learn and gather information from each other. Refreshments provided, please RSVP by October 19. Thank you to the Limer/Dabney families for their recent donation of digital photo copies of pictures of businesses in downtown Heyworth to add to our collection.
