Prairie Grove National Battlefield will be at the library on Monday, November 13th at 6:00 p.m. for a presentation on the Cherokee Civil War. This program looks at the Trail of Tears era through the Civil War, and how the tensions within the Cherokee Tribe led to an internal Civil War that predated the American Civil War (and took place here in NW Arkansas). The tribal tensions present in NW Arkansas greatly determined which Cherokees fought for the Union, and which fought for the Confederacy. The Trail of Tears passes directly through Prairie Grove Battlefield.
We know that our small library can get pretty loud, especially if there is an event going on. To help combat this issue and provide our patrons with a quiet space where they can read and study, we will be implementing a Designated Quiet Time during which we will not schedule events. Thursdays from 9:00-12:00 and Fridays from 1:00-5:00 we will not have any events scheduled. Feel free to come to use the library to read, study, and enjoy the quiet space.
The Friends of the Library is hosting their final Christmas Basket Silent Auction. This yearly tradition is going out in style with many of their beautiful baskets. These wonderful creations make for easy Christmas shopping and the proceeds support the library!
