This year, the Daviess County Public Library is seeking to inspire our adult patrons with a Winter Reading line-up like we’ve never had before. The theme, This Is Your Year @ Your Library, is meant to motivate and encourage our adult patrons to get out and enjoy new experiences in the coming New Year. First up, Get Inspired! @ Your Library. This four part series will provide our patrons with the opportunity to meet and engage with four locals who inspire others on a daily basis with their stories of perseverance in tough times, refusing to give into heartbreak, and providing encouragement to others sharing similar experiences.
