Adult Book Club


Adult Book Club meets from 4:30 to 5:30 every Second Thursday of each month.  Please come and join us.   March 12th. book club choice is "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens. For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.  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.
