Ready for Prime Time!

We've launched something new...and LIVE! 

In late June we began airing a new live video series, Karen and Teleia on Books, on our Facebook page.  In the first installment Karen Beach, Deputy Director and Teleia White, Director of Individual Giving, provided a sneak peak into the author selection process for Verse & Vino and shared a few good reads. 

We'll be announcing the full slate of authors later this summer when everything is finalized, but it's not too early to reserve a table for your book club or sponsor a table!

We'll be broadcasting live every few weeks - email us at to suggest topics or tell us what you think.


Some of the books mentioned are pre-release copies - but it's not too early to put your name on the Library's "holds" list so you're first in line when they arrive!
