Lynne Scott signs her latest book Saturday at the library

Popular Ada author Lynne Scott will have a book signing from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, in the Ada Public Library.

Her latest novel, “Love in Small Doses,” is the story of a small town pharmacist and the changes she and the town experience when a large retailer moves in for competition.

Copies of Scott’s earlier novels will also be available for purchase at Saturday’s signing.
Scott’s previous titles are “Community Pool,”  “Miranda’s Bottom,” “Chronia Polla,” and a novella, “Mr. Hurst’s Ambition.”  They are listed under the authorship of Lynne E. Scott.

Feet for Fines at the Ada Public Library

Now through Saturday, Dec. 13 patrons of the Ada Public Library may pay off their library fines and help others at the same time!

The program is sponsored by the ONU Women, in collaboration with the Friends of the Ada Public Library.

Here’s how it works: Patrons may pay library fines (not eligible for lost book fees) in the following manner:

1 pair of NEW kid’s shoes (no flip flops) = $5 worth of fines
1 pair of NEW gloves = $5 worth of fines
1 NEW hat or scarf = $5 worth of fines
1 pair of NEW kid’s socks = $1 worth of fines

All of the collected items will be donated to Helping Hands, a Hardin County charity.

Remember, remember, these dates in December!

Mark your calendars for these GREAT, FREE, and FUN events on the horizon for December at the Library:

Stop by the Ada Public Library between Monday, Nov. 24 to Saturday, Dec. 6 to put in a bid on one of our holiday baskets.

Baskets are donated by local businesses and individuals, and make wonderful gifts for the holiday season, and also help the Library raise funds for our Summer Reading family programs--we've been able to raise over $2,000 the past two years!

If you'd like to donate a basket or gift,  think outside the box!

Businesses/organizations/individuals who choose to donate should drop their basket or items off at the library by closing time, Saturday, November 22nd. The library will have the cellophane and ribbons and will wrap the baskets.
