Tuesday, November 1, 2022

fiction: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek by Kim Michele Richardson… Highly recommended !!! Although this is a novel it is inspired by true details such as there is an actual Troublesome Creek in Kentucky which this novel takes place.  Also in 1935 President Franklin Roosevelt formed the WPA which included librarians called book women who traveled horseback in the mountains of Kentucky to deliver books to those who were either not physically able or no way of transportation to travel. And there were people with blue skin such as the main character in this book.  Highly recommended !!!

Vance Township Library will participate in the Illinois Heartland Library System’s 4th Annual LIBRARY CRAWL.  You may pick up an Official Passport which names all 125 libraries participating.  This is Vance Township Library’s 3rd year and it is very interesting to visit other libraries and come home with ideas.  This year’s Library Crawl is October 1 – October 31, 2022.

Painting Rocks Program

Painted rocks have already been painted, hidden, collected, and re-hidden by those who enjoy this popular hobby in Fairmount.

Therefore, Vance Township Library is conducting more painting classes this spring and summer for anyone who wants to attend, and from any town.

Next painting class will be posted.
