** Book Club – Worthington **
- Science Fiction/Fantasy Monthly Book Club:
- Please join us Wednesday, August 10th at 5 p.m. in the library’s Program Room!
- This Month’s Topic = Hard Fantasy: When an author applies logic and rules into creating a Magic System that the world and its characters strictly follow to conduct magical feats. Instead of only focusing on expanding the world through multiple books they also focus within and dig deeper into why and how things work. Some examples are: Wheel of Time series, Lord of the Rings, The Way of the King or The Dying Earth.
** A Note from the Library Director **
- The Nobles County Library is looking for historical, cultural or personal collections to fill our display case in our entryway! Items will be on display in this locked case for one month. If you would like to show off your collection, please speak to Beth to make arrangements.
** New at the Library **
