Nov 15, 2017 Library Newspaper Article for Eclipse


   A big thank you goes out to all who supported our Friends of the Parkersburg Library pillow cleaning fundraiser, and attended the fun program with guest author, Darcy Maulsby!

   Our next exciting event is on Saturday, Nov. 18, with Lisa Laird and “Pockets Full of Fun” Puppet Show.  The show starts at 11 am, and there will be some activities and treats at the end of the program. All are welcomed to attend, but children under the age of eight need to be accompanied by an adult.  This event is free of charge, and made possible by the Butler County Community Foundation Grant.

   Save the date:  Our next Trivia Day is set for Wednesday, November 29, from 3:30-4:30 pm.  The theme is, “Christmas Movies.”  Bring your friends and work as a team to answer the most trivia questions correctly and win a prize!  This program is for adults, teens and children…those under the age of eight need to be accompanied by an adult.
