    November, A Time for Thanksgiving

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s truly hard to believe that we have just passed over the threshold for the month of November. Where have all the other months gone? I mean really, wasn’t it just July 4th yesterday? Anyway, any time I think it’s going to take forever for something to get here such as a vacation, holiday, etc. I have come to the conclusion that I am now very wrong. The moments in our…

Just recently some changes have been made to the way in which the public can access this wonderful music site.

    Autumn beckons us for more at the library…

    By: Christy V. Temple              Fall is here and I am so excited for so many reasons. The main reason I love this time of year stems from the fact that the temperature starts dropping and all of the beautiful autumnal colors come into play. I love the oranges, deep reds, greens, yellows, and all of the other natural deep brown hues that invade my senses at this time of the year. I love decorating…

    The Lunie Librarians are over the Moon about the Imagination Library Spelling Bee

    By: Christy V. Temple This past Tuesday evening, September 12th, 2017, the Imagination Library held its annual Spelling Bee here in Owensboro, Kentucky. This year the “Bee” is taking place at Gambrinus Libation Emporium downtown on Main Street. This year, just as in years past, the Daviess County Public Library has put together a team to try and beat out the other local teams to win the coveted prize of being the best spellers for…

    Backyard Bonanza

    By: Christy V. Temple Okay, summer vacations are over and the kids are back in school, so this can mean only one thing, “party.” No, just kidding. The truth is as adults we are always working so this really doesn’t apply to us this much anyway. We are always on the go and have things to do away from our home but it’s also nice to get back to basics and this is a good…

    By: Christy V. Temple I am excited to announce a new contest going on at the Daviess County Public Library in the months of August and September 2017. The program is called: DASH for the STASH and it’s been going on now in the state of Kentucky for the past 4 years. This is the first year that our library has decided to be a part of the contest. Does this contest involve running? No,…

    Are you ready, it’s DIY time in July

    By: Christy V. Temple Ahh, it’s the time of year where everyone thinks of ice cream, Fourth of July parties, backyard barbecues, lounging by the pool, staying out until midnight and sleeping in until noon, and getting your house and yard in order. To be honest, it’s this last part that’s not always the most fun in the world but has to be done if we want our home and property to look good. So,…

    Slowing down for Summer Time

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s hard to believe that in less than a week we will already be celebrating Independence Day on July 4th, 2017. Where does the time go? It seems only yesterday that we were celebrating Memorial Day and now it’s already at least a month removed from our lives. Oh, and don’t get me started on the fact that in general, even though they say summer doesn’t officially start until June 21st,…

    Build a Better World with the Daviess County Public Library

    by Taryn Norris Every June and July, school-aged children look forward to the glorious reprieve from school called Summer Vacation. So of course, parents are annually tasked with rearranging schedules and figuring out what to do with their children from eight in the morning until mid-afternoon. Some parents enroll their children in day camps or summer camps. Other parents find a babysitter or family member to help them balance work schedules with childcare. And then,…
