Upcoming Adult Programming @ EOL!

We have a couple of exciting events coming up next week!

On Tuesday, April 22nd the library will kickoff our first Evening Book Group (to be continued monthly on the last Tuesday of the month 6:30-8pm)! Come join me in the library's conference room for a great discussion about our Big Read book selection, Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. We have plenty of copies so come check out one today and join us for the discussion on Tuesday night from 6:30pm-8pm. Light refreshments provided. Contact Holley Wesley (205/445-1117 or for more information.

Join us Wednesday, April 23rd for an exciting Brown Bag program at 12:30pm in the library's meeting room. The program will be a Big Read Scholar's Panel consisting of several scholars from area colleges and universities giving us their unique insight into themes and issues surrounding Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. Published over 40 years ago, Lee's novel about justice and humanity is still poignantly relevant today.

The most exciting event yet takes place on Thursday April 24th!
