The fall events directory for the Roanoke County Libraries has been released, and there’s a lot happening, including a series of welcome receptions at each of the libraries and several author talks. See the full events listing here.
Readers: here’s an opportunity to read along and discuss a new or favorite book with some fellow bookworms. All of these book groups are open to the general public. And there’s no long term commitment. So what are you waiting for? Try out a book group.
