The Band Wagon Goes Right to the Library
February 23, 2011
Above is an image of an old advertising flyer from International Harvester dated 1909. It encourages people to get on the band wagon, and become dealers for new IH engines for farms and implements. They are advertised as designed especially for farm purposes, and they are durable. The add promises big profits for people who will become local dealers.
At the Library, we want to encourage you to jump on the Library band wagon, and enjoy all the assets that we offer here. Many of your neighbors are regular customers here already, and we would like to see you here also. The library has a great selection of books, music CDs, videos, childrens' materials, and a trained staff who would love to say hello. There are many programs, services, and events to enjoy.
For one example, our book club will meet on Tuesday, March 8th at 4 p.m. We would love to have you participate. We are reading Deaths on Pleasant Street by Giles Fowler. This is a true murder mystery that took place in 1909 in one of the most prominent families in Kansas City. The subtitle of the book reads "The Ghastly Enigma of Colonel Swope and Doctor Hyde". I'm about half done with the book, and I am enjoying it.
The Library band wagon contains programs listed on our website and in a publication called Beyond the Books. It has fun storytimes for children, graphic novels for young adults, and many other services. Drop by the Library, use your favorite assets here, and say "Hi" to your friends who are already here enjoying the Library "Band Wagon".
