ADAMS COUNTY LIBRARY NEWS

If you enjoy exploring the woods at night, or have heard strange sounds while out hiking, come meet The Ohio Nightstalkers at the West Union Library, when they present “Bigfoot in Ohio?” on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 1 p.m.. Come hear the Nightstalkers share their investigations of Bigfoot sightings in our area. See footprint castings, hear firsthand accounts of encounters, and share your own experiences. The Nightstalkers will play a recording made in Oct. 2014 near Lynx in Adams County, and will also play the 1967 Patterson Gimlin film, uncut. Join us to talk Bigfoot in Ohio.

September 23 is the first day of fall. Celebrate by helping a friend sign up for a new library card. September is National Library Card Sign Up Month, and we’re celebrating our new patrons all month. Your local library card gives you access to over two million books and DVDs to borrow, free public computers and wireless Internet at each library, an eBook Catalog to instantly download eBooks and audio books, and much more. The library offers copying, faxing, scanning, and free computer help sessions. If you need help finding information, just ask a librarian – we’re glad to help.

On Thursday, Sept. 24 at 10:30 a.m., kids ages 10 through 16 are invited to join Donelle for Teen Art Class at the West Union Library. Teen Art Class meets every other Thursday morning, and studies an art technique, the history of art, and puts a new technique into practice. This week, come learn about color theory, and how color choices in art can create mood, and begin creating our own works. Please bring paper and a color medium, such as colored pencils, crayons, markers, oil pastels, or another color tool to work on your project. For more information, call Donelle at 937-544-2591.

These new books are available from your public library. Use your library card to place a request in the Online Catalog for titles that interest you, and a copy will be sent to your nearest library for you to borrow. New hardback fiction includes “The Sea Keeper’s Daughters” by Lisa Wingate, “Best Boy” by Eli Gottlieb, “Make Me” by Lee Child, “The Photograph” by Beverly Lewis, “The Gilded Hour” by Sara Donati, “Did You Ever Have A Family” by Bill Clegg, “Keeping Christmas” by Dan Walsh, “Purity” by Johnathan Franzen, “The End Game” by Catherine Coulter, “Devoted in Death” by J.D.
