Article Image Alt Text

Dr. Jerry Williams and Kathy Brewton

There are 2 organizations associated with the Winn Parish Library, one being the Winn Parish Library Board of Control and the other being Friends of the Library. Mrs. Brewton was on the Library Board and once she left that she organized the Friends of the Library. This organization was formed to assist the Library in providing equipment and classes that are not funded in the budget.

Mrs. Brewton gave us a little trivia quiz to check our knowledge about books.

There are 4 types of readers. Involved readers like to do research about their books, exacting readers are careful in their book selection, serial readers like to read all of an author’s books and eclectic readers read a lot of different things.

There are two books clubs associated with the Library-a discussion book club that meets on the 2 nd Tuesday of each month at 9:30 and discusses an assigned book. The other club is the Reader’s Review and a review is given of a particular book.
