New year, new programming at your local library
By Michelle Blaylock
William Bradford Huie Library of Hartselle
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. We are looking forward to an exciting year at the library. It won’t be long before the planning for our new library will be in full swing. I look forward to being able to share more details about this as time goes on.
Coming up in January, we will welcome Mr. James D. “Jamie” Putman Jan. 22 at 5 pm. Mr. Putman is an author, a local historian and the grandson of Christine Putman and former Alabama Governor James E. “Big Jim” Folsom. He will join us to share his personal insights and historical observations about his new book, Christine Putman & Big Jim Folsom: A Memoir of Politics, Power, and Love in the Deep South. Following his talk there will be a question-and-answer session and book signing. Books are available from Amazon and will NOT be available for purchase at the library the night of the event. However, if you wish to have a book autographed, you will have to purchase it through Amazon prior to this event.
Of course, we will have all of our normal programming such as Little Listeners Story Time, two book clubs (kids and adults), painting classes for kids, Homeschool Hangout and more. For more information about these activities, please stop by the library and pick up one of our monthly calendars or call (256) 773-9880. Our calendars are also on the City of Hartselle Facebook page and the Friends of the Huie Library Facebook page.
