  • COLUMN: The Obscure Alcove by Sheree Priddy

    In doing some online research not long ago, I ran across this article that I would like to pass on to you. It has some suggestions that might help all patrons of the LaRue County Public Library. I always need suggestions to keep me organized and thought you might too. 

    “Keep Track of Library Books and Avoid Fines” comes from www.lifeyourway.net. I hope you will find at least one suggestion easy for you to implement as we approach a busy – and hopefully pleasant – summer.

  • COLUMN: Plan ahead for home canning season

    For those who preserve food, now is a great time to gear up for the season. Start by inventorying supplies and getting a head start on purchasing needed jars and lids and other necessities.

    Pressure canners: Dial gauge canners need to be checked for accuracy to ensure safe processing pressure and temperature. Contact the Extension office (270-358-3401) and make an appointment to have your dial gauge on your canner lid tested for accuracy. This also will be available on May 19, Ag Market Day.

  • Cafe supports those with memory loss

    Four couples recently sat around a table at a local church sharing snacks and stories of their favorite springtime activities, because after all, memories are too precious to lose.

    While all this may sound trivial to some, to these couples memories are everything because one spouse has been diagnosed with a form of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Sharing memories through Memory Café gives them an outlet to socialize and support and receive support from others going down the same road.
