  • Library shows off new bookmobile

    The LaRue County Public Library has a new bookmobile, and it’s all thanks to a $43,776 donation made nearly 30 years ago.
    In November 1982, The Ladies Lincoln League, Inc., turned over their funds to the library board after disbanding the organization with 73 years of service to the community.
    According to Library Director Dana Jolly, the purchase of the bookmobile would not have been possible without the funding donated all those years ago by the Ladies Lincoln League.
