Have you picked up your copy of The Crucible by Arthur Miller? Ann is a direct descendant of two persons accused of being witches executed during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. She also had a third relative who was condemned but not hanged. One of these descendants was Rebecca Towne Nurse, a character in Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible. Join the Heyworth Public Library in reading The Crucible in October and hearing Ann's fascinating family study. Multiple copies will be available for checkout during October at the circulation desk.
Fall Animals y’all is the topic tonight at Family Storytime. Be sure to sign up as this program is popular and supplies are limited to 25.
