Book lovers are in for a treat on Saturday, April 8th. Local authors and illustrators representing fiction, nonfiction, local history, teen and children’s books will be available on all three levels of the Main Library. Authors will have copies of their works available for purchasing and signing. This is a wonderful opportunity to support local authors and to provide a venue where you, our local readers, can connect with them. Be sure to stop by between 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
To kick off this month's featured location, the Hebron Library, we have an introduction from Deirdre Mc Intyre, Branch Supervisor. Deirdre Mc Intyre has been the Hebron Supervisor since July 2014 but has worked for LCL since 1994. A native of Dublin, Ireland, she has fond memories as a new immigrant of visiting the book sale cart at the Emerson R. Miller branch with her brother where she said "We would buy any and every history book we could lay our hands on." She still loves to see happy Hebron Library visitors wander over to the sale cart and get excited about a "find"!

Libraries provide so much more than a place for us to enjoy great novels or to discover amazing adventures and untold history. Yes, they help us ace our research papers and provide a quiet space to study, but they do so much more.
