County Library, which was constructed last year at a cost of well over the $100, 000 and which was dedicated late in October, lnas since that time been of in- calculable value to the re- sidents of Ohio County. The library has available to Ohio Countians 14,000 books of which 90 percent, of the most recent books, were supplied by the regional library at Frankfort, according to Tom Sutherland, Regional Direc- tor. The library already had a collection of its own, but! when the Regional Offices were moved to the Green River Region, in Ohio Coun- ty, the participating mem- bers became recipients of the books from the RegEon- ,M Library. New ooks arrive weekly to be distributed to the five libraries who are members of the Green River region. The five libraries in the Green River Region are; Ohio County, Butler, Ed- monson , Mclean and Han- cock Counties. It is an item of interest to the residents of Ohio County, that many services are available to them through the local library. For an example, if in re- search work a professional man or woman ( Lawyers, Ministers. etc.)needs a book not available at the local time writing out the copy, library, the book can be for 25 a sheet and in a obtained from the regional library, by Tom Su'therland, Regional Director, who checks the book out from the regional library and in turn issues it to the party needing it. It was also noted that this process of obtain- ing the desired book from the regional library can be done in a period of two or three days. In addition to keeping thousands of books in read- iness for their readers, the local library staff is pre- pared to loan reproductions of framed paintings, record- ings of music, language, and literature, as well as films for children. Not only the films are available, but also the projector screens and all the related parapher- nelia. Many works are on hand for all age groups of avid readers, such as Fiction and Non-fiction (both adult and juvenile) as well as biogra- phies and Childrens Easy Books. A recent addition to the services of the library is the acquisition of a 3M Dry Photo Copyer. If a person desires to make a copy of an entire page from one of the reference works, rather than spend a great deal of matter of seconds with the help of the Photo Copyer, he has a copy of the page. This also applies to maga- zines, letters, and any type of printed matter. Also available to the user of the library is a Card Catalogue, a system where- by the desired book may be quickly and easily located. The Bookmobile, operated by Mrs. Leonard Wade, is a very valuable asset to the :library, in that all areas of the county may be served better. The Bookmobile tours the entire county, mak- ing short stops in different neighborhoods thus encour- aging and making the check- ing of books easier for all age groups. A schedule of the destinations as well as the times of the visits l scheduled for the Bookmo- bile may be found in this issue of the Times. It was noted that plans are under way to begin a Childrens Hour at the lib- rary. Presently under way is a course on the Great Books designed to give people a method of conduct- Ing an exercise in reflective thinking, and discussing the works of authors who have made the strongest impres- sion on civilization.
