Battle of Marshall lecture, National Library Week, books sale datesPosted Thursday, April 12, 2012, at 9:42 AM
With great anticipation, we invite everyone to join us on Thursday, April 19, at 6:30 p.m. for a special program "The Battle of Marshall" presented by local historian Marvin Wilhite.
What really happened and where? Mr. Wilhite will provide a fresh perspective pulled from actual historical accounts in local newspapers.
National Library Week has rolled around again, a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide.
The theme for the 2012 National Library Week is: You Belong @ Your Library. In challenging economic times, libraries give free access to books and computers, allowing people to create resumes and accomplish job searches, locate accurate financial information, go to online classes, or even provide information for new members of our community.
And of course, we offer music CDs and audiobooks, as well as DVDs for your down-time. Stop by and check out all that we have to offer!
The Library Book Sale takes place this week, April 13-15, with a special Friends of the Library Pre-Sale on Friday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Become a Friend with a $10 membership and you will be invited to three Pre-Sales annually.
This is your chance to have first pick at the book sale. The public book sale is from 1 to 5 pm on April 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 15.
