Here is my last invitation to our Ice Cream Social in honor of our 100th anniversary— from 2-4 pm. this Sunday. Informal, excellent Graeter’s ice cream, cupcakes, release of our newest brochure, free hand fans (we know the library didn’t have air conditioning back then, so a fan and a bowl of ice cream seems a good way to cool off), Harriet Jackson Groh will sing a few tunes, there will be a little bit of speaking and a chance for anyone to discuss what the library has meant to them, a very, very long banner filled with pictures and articles about the library and the town from 1913-present.

We hope that there will be some people that will wear “period” clothing—1915-2015 is a good span of time to find something fun to wear. There will be balloons, banners and just fun to acknowledge the passing of the century mark. By Ripley standards, not too long, but we are proud of the milestone, and glad we are still here.

Leading up to the event, this week is our special “Food for Fines”—a can or box of non-perishable food will be equal to $3 off your overdue fines, and special $4 off if you bring in canned meat, cereal, crackers or canned fruit. Help us help the food pantry in Ripley.

Other happenings include the starting of story times again on Thursdays. Ripley is for kids three to five year olds at 10:30 a.m., Russellville for toddlers two to three years old at 11 a.m. each Thursday.

Computer classes are also starting again at Aberdeen from 2-3:30 p.m. Tuesday. Next Tuesday’s topic is email—how to attach pictures and documents, along with plenty of time to discuss other issues you have had concerning emails.

At Ripley, we have set aside time that you can arrange a one-on-one training on your computer topic of choice from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. It could be setting up your Facebook, learn why your laptop does strange things, organizing files, or whatever. As it is one-on-one, we ask that you call or stop by to make an appointment. We also are having a two session class on eBay, both buying and selling with tips and tricks and strategies. First class was Wednesday, but if you missed it, I think you would still learn some good ideas coming to the second session from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 23, at Ripley.

If you want to see what else is happening, we invite you to visit our web page and our Facebook at to see the stuff between the articles.

Thank you for all of your support throughout the years.
