Gamers at the Ada Library

Buckeye Gamers in Flight will host a game day for all ages from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Ada Public Library. “Wings of Glory” and other games will be played.

Libraries offer tech service

Libraries in Ada, Kenton, Dunkirk, Forest, and Mt. Victory will continue to offer tech service to patrons, thanks to a state library grant being renewed for another year. As in the past year, Chloe Noel will visit each library every week and, on occasion, offer classes.

During the past year, she answered questions from more than 1,000 patrons in Hardin County who came to her for help with iPhone, tablet, laptop, and computer problems with their software or hardware.

Zombies at the library!

Harry Potter, Harry Potter, and more Harry Potter

By Darlene Bowers
“Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald, Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air, Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us something worth knowing, Bring us back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest, And learn until our brains all rot..."
— J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone)

Hocus Pocus...it's October 31st

Happy Halloween

By Monty Siekerman
Today is Halloween in most parts of the nation, but in Ohio local authorities decide when to have trick or treat. Ada had three major events last week in observance of Halloween. But the folks at the Ada Public Library want to wish you Happy Halloween on the REAL date...today, the 31st.

On Monday, those who attended a special program at the library received a paper sack as they entered the darkened meeting room.  The sack contained a rats tail and other ghoulish items, so they were told. Spider rings, nasal strips, plastic eyeballs and bones were included in the small sack. It was all part of a party for 6-12th graders.
