ADAMS COUNTY LIBRARY NEWS

Thanks to the Ohio Night Stalkers, who presented a program about “Bigfoot in Ohio” at the West Union Library in September. Over 70 people attended the popular event to hear the Night Stalkers share their experiences tracking Bigfoot, hear an audio recording made near Lynx in Adams County, see foot print castings, and more. Many at the event shared their own Bigfoot experiences with sounds, footprints, and sightings. If you missed this event, plan to join us when the Ohio Night Stalkers make an encore presentation at the Peebles Library on Saturday, Nov. 14.

On Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 5 p.m., local authors will visit the Peebles Library to share about their work during a book signing. Come meet Lisa Corum Fox, who will sign copies of her book “Young Ulysses,” Part One of “The Underground Railroad Roots of Hiram Ulysses Grant” series. F. R. Warnock will share his boys’ adventure tale “The Warrior’s Drum,” about a two hundred year old mystery, a missing Native American drum, and a curse. Jonah Kidder is the author of “The Caves of Adams County.” Pollyanna Covert is the author of several picture books for young children. Stop by to meet the authors, purchase signed copies of their books, and learn more about their stories. The Peebles Magazine Club is sponsoring this event.

Sign up now to participate in a Teen Zombie Apocalypse party at the North Adams Library. On Thursday, Oct. 15 from 3- 4:30 p.m., teens ages 11 through 18 will form teams of humans vs. zombies, and battle with Nerf guns outside the North Adams Library. Teens and parents must register in advance to attend the event, and parents must sign a waiver. Plan to bring your own Nerf gun, or ask at the library when you register about a limited number of Nerf guns you can borrow. Refreshments will be provided, and the party will go on, rain or shine.
