Local author Dave Spiering will be having a book signing at the Mary K. Finley Library on Saturday June 22, 10 am to 3 pm for his book I Surrender All. Copies will be available for purchase during the event at a discounted price.
Book Description from Tate Publishing:
Imagine an unexpected guest showed up at your house. Would you be scrambling around, wiping down countertops and straightening up couch cushions? What preparations would you need to make to get your house in order?
Now imagine that Jesus was that special visitor. Is your spiritual house in order?
If not, I Surrender All is a wonderful tool for all Christians ready to get serious about their faith and make preparations for the Lord's return. Author Dave Spiering reminds us that holiness and obedience are not options; they are commands. God desires for us to be informed of the truth, transformed to the image of Christ, and called into spiritual service. We find true happiness when we seek to know and to please God.
Be encouraged as you receive spiritual nourishment and learn to say I Surrender All.

This year’s Adult Summer Reading Program at Barton County Library is literally breaking new ground, in more ways than one. The success of our previous reading programs for adults has encouraged us to continue offering rewards for participation and great prizes for finishing the program’s goals.
Beginning on June 1, and continuing through July 31, our adult patrons can play a game of Library BINGO to qualify for treat coupons and a chance to win one of three Grand Prizes. Each BINGO card is the same and each player has the same chance to win. BINGOs are made by completing a task or answering a question for each square on the card. A blackout (completing every square on the card) entitles the player to be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.
Those who have participated in previous reading programs at the library are familiar with the generous prizes to be won, and this year is even better! We will be awarding three Grand Prizes of a NOOK Simple Touch E-reader with Glow-Light!
Also new this summer will be the addition of special presentations which we hope will encourage participants to break new ground in their own lives, to plant the seeds of new thoughts, ideas and behaviors. “Claim Your Ground with Journaling” will be presented on June 17 at 1:00 p.m. On July 15 at 1:00 p.m. you can use your new journaling skills to “Dig Up Your Past with Memoir Writing”. Both presentations are for beginning or aspiring writers and are free of charge for Barton County library card holders who are 18 years of age or more. Stop by the library for more information or to sign up.
