Lunch With Books: Downtown Wheeling Memories

December 17, 2013


Event starts at 12:00 PM.

The “Neighborhood Nostalgia” series continues at Lunch WIth Books at the Ohio County Public Library on December 17 at noon with DOWNTOWN WHEELING MEMORIES. Patrons are invited to share memories of this great Wheeling neighborhood and bring photos for scanning. Building upon the success of the inaugural Warwood Memories program, the library created the series with the goal of collecting memories of all of Wheeling’s great neighborhoods from the people who know them best. Lunch With Books programs are free and open to the public. Patrons are invited to bring a bag lunch and free beverages are served. Please call the library at 304-232-0244 or visit facebook.com/lunchwithbooks for more information.

"Lunch With Books” is the library’s flagship program for adult patrons. Bring a bag lunch and enjoy presentations by authors, poets, historians, musicians and a variety of other people. Complimentary beverages are provided. These free programs usually start at noon on Tuesdays in the auditorium on the lower level of the library.
