Library Talk March 11

Thanks to John Gibson, the Ripley library received an 1839 Mitchell’s Pocket Map of Ohio Indiana, Illinois & Michigan.  This map was carefully published with the map folded in a small leather
book so it could safely be carried as one would travel.  The map of course is fragile, but it has been professionally framed with the map open. We welcome you to stop in and look at this beautiful and historical document.

We have no idea how useful this may be, but our three libraries will be distribution sites for at-home Covide-19 test kits. The kits are free, however you must register through NAVICA (free app on Google Play or Apple Play) and then set up at home with a smartphone, tablet or computer with a webcam, as a medical proctor will walk you through this very simple to do test. It must be done at home, not at the library!  Please call the Ripley library
for more information at 937-392-4871.

While I’ll continue to occasionally list new books or DVDs added to our shelves, you can check out our website at
www.RipleyLibrary.com for lists of what we think might be the most popular titles, and this will be updated frequently.

Due to the popularity of Harlequins’ Love Inspired Inspirational Romances and Love Inspired Suspense in the large print, we’ve increased our monthly standing order. These books seem to be popular
all over the state, as after meeting our patrons demands, they ‘travel’ to many libraries in our system. Some are starting to look a little warn, but they keep on going and we will keep repairing worn out spines. Most popular seem to be the suspense with K-9
units, and then Amish and cowboy themed romances.
