Dallas County Reads 1 Book
Post Author: Trever

The Dallas County Library Association will once again present a county-wide READ program with a twist this year. This year, two Dallas County Reads 1 Book programs are planned. Donald Harstad’s November Rain is the fiction selection. Mr. Harstad is an Iowa author and former police officer specializing in crime fiction and police procedurals. His novels are set in “Nation County”, a fictional rural county in Iowa, and include many of the same characters, primarily centering on police officer Carl Houseman. Mr. Harstad will be presenting an Author/Book Talk at the Granger Community Building on September 18, 2017 at 6:30pm following by a book signing and good eats.

This September, Friends of the Adel Public Library Foundation will have their second annual Anything Goes Basket Silent Auction. Starting the week of Labor Day, we will be collecting baskets at the library and the silent auction will then run September 11th through September 29th at 5:00p.m. The money raised will be used to purchase a new booth and study table with a charging station for the second floor. Put your thinking caps on and surprise us with a basket that will be the hit of the silent auction! Please stop by the library to pick up the form that you will need to turn in when you bring in your basket.
