Library Talk, November 1st 2018

             Don’t forget this Saturday, November 3rd  10-4:00 will be the first annual Holiday Market event in the library annex, 19 Main Street in Ripley.  A diverse group of artisans will be present selling their creations—pottery, wood, soap, decorative items, local honey, cards, hand spun wool (spinning will be demonstrated during the day) and so much more.  The event will ‘spill’ into several other businesses, as there will be several artisans setting up at the Olde Piano Factory on this day only, and CoHearts River House Restaurant is whipping up some unique worldwide desserts to have on hand. (Hmm, go browsing and shopping, then go for a scrumptious dessert afterwards, sounds like a plan to me!)

           On Monday, November 5th at 11:00- noon, the Ripley library will be the spot for an explanation of the Federal and Ohio historic tax credit program to help out in reducing the costs of restoring old commercial buildings.  Can you imagine our old buildings in town refurbished and open for business? This program is geared to help out.  Program given by members of the Heritage Ohio team from Columbus. Refreshments will be served.

           On Friday, November 16th, we will be having the Cincinnati Zoo give a talk as well as the opportunity to meet Bubba, one of the zoo’s own birds. Get face to face with one of the most beloved members of the avian world, A PENGUIN!  Learn about how this charming little bird lives everyday life and discover things you may not have known about one of the most recognizable birds in the world.  The Zoo is strict on the number of attendees, so you will need to pick up a ticket at the library and choose the 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. seating. The tickets will be available starting on Thursday, November 1st.  The tickets are free, but we need to do this to manage the number of people per showing. The program will be held in the annex.
