Library Promotions for September

We will be celebrating (quietly, of course) “Read an eBook Day” Sept. 18.  Our new consortium logo “Bridges” replaces the old one (Wilbor), but is more user friendly.  We offer business cards and pamphlets for help in accessing over 20,000 eBooks and  more than 8,000 audiobooks to chose from for FREE!

Also, we are celebrating “Banned Books Week”, Sept. 21-26 to emphasize our rights to intellectual freedom in the form of speech and/or print!  The theme this year is “Defend the Freedom to Read…..It’s Everybody’s Job!”  So visit your local Library and exercise your freedom!

“Hopley” Dynasty

The Anita Public Library will be hosting a book signing by the author of a new Cass County History publication: “Hopley” by Roy Marshall.  Come Monday evening, September 14 at 7:00pm to learn about the dynamic rise and fall of the Hopley Dynasty.

From dirt floor cabins and fighting Indians to the largest crop and livestock operation in Cass County where the Hopleys enjoyed their wealth and opulence, and transformed their mansion into the social hub of Lewis.  They took regular business trips to Europe and sold horses to Buffalo Bill.

Everyone will enjoy Roy’s homey stories and the refreshments as well.
