The city of Troy, Michigan was facing a budget shortfall, and was considering closing the Troy Public Library for lack of funds. Even though the necessary revenues could be raised through a miniscule tax increase, powerful anti-tax groups in the area were organized against it. A vote was scheduled amongst the city's residents, to shut the library or accept the tax increase, and Leo Burnett Detroit decided to support the library by creating a reverse psychology campaign. Yard signs began appearing that read: "Vote to Close Troy Library on August 2nd - Book Burning Party on August 5th." No one wants to be a part of a town that burns books, and the outraged citizens of Troy pushed back against the "idiotic book burners" and ultimately supported the tax increase, thus ensuring the library's survival.

Born in West Palm Beach, Florida, Sergeant Flint Robert Fivecoait’s career in the military took him all around the country and to the Middle East before finding his home in Corbin, Kentucky. Our Veterans, Their Stories is an oral history project by the Laurel County Public Library. The goal of the project is to collect and preserve stories from local veterans for current and future generations.

Enjoy a few "mocktails" with the gang at the Flint Memorial Library as Delia discusses and signs her new book "Storied Bars of New York: Where Literary Luminaries Go to Drink". Professor and New York-native (who now calls North Reading home), Delia Cabe, invites readers to take her hand and “follow in the boozy footsteps of legendary authors,” with her newest work, Storied Bars of New York: Where Literary Luminaries Go to Drink. Raised on the Lower East Side, Cabe reflects on a childhood filled with the awareness that she walked many of the same streets and entered many of the same buildings that housed some of the most famous authors. As Cabe grew up, the fascinations with the haunts of the literary legends of the past only increased, so when 21 hit, so did she– hopping bar to bar to check out the hangs of both new and historic literary luminaries in what has now culminated in her new book. Want to know what it’s like to pull up a stool with the likes of Hemingway, Updike, or Capote? Curious how Jay McInerney takes his martini, or where to find Colson Whitehead’s favorite neighborhood bar? For well-read drinkers and boozy bookworms everywhere comes Storied Bars of New York, a photographic and historical celebration of the best literary pubs, cocktail bars, and taverns of New York City. Every chapter profiles an influential bar and comes complete with photographs, a laundry list of the writerly clientele, a recipe for the establishment’s signature cocktail (as well as which authors were likely to order it), and a snapshot of its place in New York culture at the time of its eminence, as demonstrated by quotes from authors and excerpts from magazine reviews. "Storied Bars of New York: Where Literary Luminaries Go to Drink" was nationally released in June 2017 to excellent reviews.
