Upcoming Events and New Items on the Shelves

This month, The Worthington Library's Book Club is reading Spencer Quinn's Dog On It.  This is a fun, quick read for a busy season. You'll enjoy how Quinn captures the thoughts of the dog through his actions; he really nails it!  We'll be discussing this book on Thursday December 27 at 7:00pm.  Remember that we'll be closed on Dec 25 for Christmas and January 1, 2013!
In January, the book will be Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.  Jobs was a complex, interesting man and Isaacson is an excellent biographer.  There will be a lot to discuss on Thursday, January 24 at 7:00pm. Join us!

Also in January, the Friends of the Worthington Library and the Worthington Historical Society are sponsoring another Writers Read program.  Don't miss this sampling of the best of our local authors.  Previous Writers Reads have been humorous, insightful and moving.  This season's offering will be Tuesday, January 8, 7:00pm at the Blackburn Inn.
