Today's Features

  • 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.

  • The Kentucky Career Center in Elizabethtown will begin its relocation to 233 Ring Road this week.

    Men’s conference in Glendale

  • As the 2015 LaRue County Relay for Life draws near, not only will you find adults volunteering for the cause, but several LaRue County youngsters are making the most of their time as well.

  • A student was asked what the large letter K stood for on the front of his T-shirt.

    The student said, “Confused.”

    The man replied, “But that is not how you spell confused.” 

    “Man,” the student exclaimed, “you don’t know how confused I am.”

    Life can be confusing and we wonder what is going on. To add to the confusion, many unexpected things can come along to upset the apple cart. What can we do?  How can we endure?

  • Recently we had our spring semi-annual meeting of the Sunrise Volunteers.

    Sunrise Manor provided us a meal catered from Fazoli’s Restaurant in Elizabethtown.

    We elected two new officers: Sybil Skaggs, first vice-president, and Candy Vincent, second vice-president. They are both dedicated volunteers.

    We also would like to welcome two new volunteers at the Manor: Bruce Hatfield and Suzanne Boone.
