Tuesday, February 26th at 6:00 PM, Alison Homan will be at the Library to give a demonstration with her Instant Pot. You can make delicious foods in a fraction of the time that it would take with conventional methods. Join the Friends of the Library as she shares two (2) soup recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less, but taste as if they've been simmering all day.

The Fort Recovery Education Association (FREA) is sponsoring a Winter Reading Program. Fort Recovery Local Schools students of all grades are encouraged to check out books at the FR Public Library January 18th - February 23rd. Students receive a pencil when they check out books, and for every 100 books checked out during this time period, FREA will donate a book to the school library and to the public library. The more students read, the more books the libraries earn! Thank you FREA for sponsoring this great program.
