Iola Public Librarys October programs for adults begin with Metal Detecting to Unearth Treasure at 6 p.m. Oct. 8. Bob Johnson and Robbie Baker will talk about their experiences and fun while metal detecting and finding treasures with tales of the past. Baker will bring with him some samples of items he found on a recent dig.
A program opportunity which just came up and so is not listed in the librarys fall program guide is a book signing. Author Carlene Meredith Cogliati grew up in Iola and will be in town for her 45-year high school reunion. She has written several books appealing to various age levels. Her latest book, Stretch & Sarah, takes place in Kansas during a family reunion and is suitable for teens and adults. The library will host a book signing for her from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 10 in the main room of the library. She also will make several short presentations. At 4 oclock, Cogliata will read a story for young children. At 5, she will make a short presentation for middle and high school age. At 6, she will make a short presentation for adults or high school age.
The October Pinterest Party will feature scarecrow décor at 6 p.m. Oct. 21. Pre-registration and a $3 fee are due by Oct. 18.
