This is the first year for the One Book, Many Communities reading initiative for northern Miami Valley residents. Local libraries participating in the 2019 community read invite you to read “The One” by John Marrs and participate in the programs focused on the book’s theme.
Children grades K-6 are invited to write and illustrate their own books! Each week will be a different theme for both writing style and art medium, until our books are bound and put out on display at the end of the month. Please contact the library if you have any questions.
Genetics and genealogy meet as we cover the basics of DNA testing and Ancestry Library Edition. Learn how to use an Ancestry DNA kit and discover how to use the results to research your family tree with this free database. Special guest Steve Lord, from the Miami County Sheriff's Office, will explain how DNA testing can help solve crimes. No registration is required.
If you enjoy reading groups but would rather attend during daytime hours, then this is the right book club for you. Books are given to attendees at each meeting, to be read then discussed at the next meeting. If you are unable to attend we will keep your book on the holds shelf behind the circulation desk.
