Join us on Thursday, August 29th at 5:30 for a fun comedy about a group of women in a retirement home who decide to start a cheer squad. It stars Diane Keaton and Rhea Perlman. I can't tell you the title, but its what they shake.
This is an Adult Only Movie that is rated PG-13.
This summer we partnered with six other libraries in three counties to create a series of programs and discussions from the book One World: A Global Anthology of Short Stories. Our library led the way by hosting the first event. Dr. Julie Bowen set the bar high for the programs that followed! She led a lively discussion of two of the stories. The program is ending with a final gathering at the Cider Hill family Orchard on August 4th at 2pm. Participants in the program had their passports stamped and are now eligible for prize baskets! A special thanks to MGP Ingredients for donating the basket for Atchison.
If you missed out this year, don't worry! We have plans for another summer adventure in 2020!
Do you have questions about relatives, the house you live in, or the Atchison area? This Saturday the 20th is the perfect time to look for answers in our Kansas Room! Roxana, librarian and genealogist, will be available from 9-2.
