[ARCHIVED] Dothan Houston County Library System to Host Lunch Hour Learning Event

Dothan Houston County Library System is excited to host the final Lunch Hour Learning session at the library. All events are free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring a lunch and enjoy tea and a cookie provided by the library while they listen to the guest speaker.

This Lunch Hour Learning session will be held on May 15, 2013 from 11:45 am to 1 pm and will feature guest speaker Frye Gaillard, author of "The Books That Mattered: A Reader’s Memoir."

"The Books That Mattered" shares the author’s experience of growing to love books as a child through a series of deeply personal essays that explore the books he considers most influential to his personal development. These books include "Johnny Tremain," "Night," "The Grapes of Wrath," and "Slaughterhouse 5," among many others, and Gaillard expertly discusses these works creating a book that is both memoir and history, as well as a critical analysis of the selected works.

Houston-Love Memorial Library has been serving the area for over a century. From its early beginnings in a small house to its present location in a 70 year old public elementary school, the library has grown significantly through the generosity of donors. Services and resources include reading materials, computers, internet access, homework help, computer classes, and meeting rooms.
