When you think of a library, a quiet, peaceful environment usually comes to mind. The LaRue County Public Library was far from that on Friday, however, as it played host to 120 people, two Kentucky Down Under representatives and several native Australian animals.
The Hardin & LaRue Diabetes Coalition will meet 6 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Lincoln Trail District Health Department, 108 New Glendale Road, Elizabethtown. It is open to anyone with interest in early diagnosis, reduction of complications, prevention and elimination of diabetes. For more information or to register for classes, contact Melissa Conder at 769-1601, Ext. 1035.
Two major events are in the works for this month at LaRue County Public Library.
Kentucky Down Under, the organization in Horse Cave, that features native Australian animals, will make its way to the library at 11 a.m. Friday. They will be bringing a kangaroo, reptiles and birds for participants to see.
