[Audio] Calloway County Public Library Celebrates National Library Week

Matt Markgraf, WKMS

It's National Library Week. Sandy Linn with the Calloway County Public Library says it's a time to celebrate the positive transformation that libraries bring to communities all across the country. Hear her speak with Tracy Ross on Sounds Good about upcoming CCPL events. 

Saturday, the Murray Art Guild will stop at CCPL for this month’s Art Hop. Linn says the event will feature a work from area artists Justin Roberts and Nathan Kennedy along with live entertainment from local band Water Horse. There’s also a “You be the Judge” quilt show by the Quilt Lovers of Murray.

The evening’s activities run from 5-7:30 P.M.

Starting next week, the library will air episodes of a national park film series. The series, directed by Ken Burns, will be featured at CCPL through September.

This summer won’t be barren, either. The library’s already planning its summer reading and summer storytime programs. Linn says high demand has pushed the registration period for those events up to April 18.

Tracy started working for WKMS in 1994 while attending Murray State University. After receiving his Bachelors and Masters degrees from MSU he was hired as Operations/Web/Sports Director in 2000.
