“She owned the road as an elephant owns the veldt and like a big blue elephant moved with massive grace and dignity.” (*David Drake, Overdue Notice: Poems from the Library) A metaphorical description of your LaRue County Public Library bookmobile as she travels the roadways of our county.
The bookmobile operator is librarian, Virginia Napier, who has recently achieved a milestone here at the library. In honor of Napier’s accomplishments, we want to acquaint you with Napier who is a great asset to our library, as well as our community.

Thought for the week: Too much love never spoils children. Children become spoiled when we substitute presents for presence!
Early deadline threw me off guard, rushed around to get one together, and then forgot to send it. Go figure, that’s my story and I am sticking to it.
I went to the open house at Robin Brook assisted living on Thursday, October 15. What a beautiful place! Friday, October 16, we went to the movies to see The Ghost and Mr. Chicken. I love that movie! Try coming up with a name like that.
