Adult Book Club


Adult Book Club meets from 4:30 to 5:30 every Second Thursday of each month.  Please come and join us.  The book for February 14th is "The Giver of Stars" by Jojo Moyes.  Set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond, from the author of Me Before You The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope.  At times funny, at others heartbreaking, this is a richly rewarding novel of women's friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.  Please call the library at 586-5317 if you wish for us to order you a book.



 The friendly and helpful staff helped me get Wifi at the library so I could complete a task and still have visit time with family while I was in town yesterday! The library is a wonderful resource for Palestine! 

 We always feel welcome. It's just a great resource for our small community. The children's programs are wonderful. The people are always friendly and helpful. 

 Beautiful, Very modern facility.
