WORTHINGTON — The Nobles County Library, 407 12th St., Worthington, is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The Adrian Branch Library, 214 Maine Ave., Adrian, is open from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, noon to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Science Fiction/Fantasy Monthly Book Club: The next meeting is at 5 p.m. Aug. 10, in the library’s Program Room. This month’s topic is hard fantasy: When an author applies logic and rules into creating a Magic System that the world and its characters strictly follow to conduct magical feats. Instead of only focusing on expanding the world through multiple books, they also focus within and dig deeper into why and how things work. Some examples are the Wheel of Time series, Lord of the Rings, The Way of the King or The Dying Earth.

“We’ve been really fortunate as far as equipment goes. Things break when it gets cold. The guys have been really good about being careful.”
From semi-strangers to old friends, it's touching to have people wish you the best.

From the Library Director: The Nobles County Library is looking for historical, cultural or personal collections to fill our display case in our entryway. Items will be on display in this locked case for one month. If you would like to show off your collection, please speak to Beth to make arrangements.

Monthly book display: Each month a theme is chosen and displayed out front. We’ve featured books about graduation, Spanish language books and this month features graphic novels. Come and take a look — and watch for next month’s theme!

Summer Reading Program: This year’s theme is “Read beyond the beaten path.” Earn library dollars for reading. Every 60 minutes you read, or someone reads to you, you will earn one library dollar to spend at the Nobles County Library Store.
