Thank you to the Friends of the Manchester, North Adams, and West Union Libraries, the Peebles Magazine Club, and all the other sponsors who helped support the Summer Reading Program special events and prizes this year.

This summer, the library offered an adult Summer Reading program for the first time, and participation in the adult Summer Reading goals was extremely popular. Even though the reading program is over, you’re invited to keep on reading! Your local library offers books and audio books, magazines, newspapers, and movies, eBooks and audio books available for download at ohioebooks.org, free computer tutoring, wireless Internet, and much more. If you need information, or aren’t sure how to find the answer to a question, just ask – we’re glad to help.

Today at 4 p.m., everyone is invited to join us for the Euchre Club at the West Union Library. The Euchre Club is an informal group that meets on the third Wednesday of each month to enjoy playing casual, non- competitive Euchre with friends. We use North American Standard rules, and all players are welcome. Bring a Euchre partner, or come alone – we’ll take turns forming teams. Everyone is invited. For more information, call Tara at (937) 544-2591.

Each library offers weekly Story Time for preschool-age children. Parents and caregivers are invited to bring your child to the library for reading, crafts, singing, and games, and discover how fun developing a love of reading can be. The Manchester Library offers weekly Story Time every Monday at 10:30 a.m., and the West Union Library offers weekly Story Time every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. The North Adams and Peebles Libraries Story Times are on summer holiday, and will resume in August at the start of the school year.

The Adams County Public Library has a booth in the Merchants’ Hall at the Adams County Fair. Stop by to participate in fun activities for kids, held Monday through Friday of Fair Week at our booth between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. On Friday, Library employee and artist Donelle Lacy will sketch caricatures of those who stop by, on request. Come pick up a used book to read while you are waiting for the next 4H show, or grab a magnet to help you remember you library’s phone number. We’ll see you at the Fair!
