Lunch with Books & People's University
The Ohio County Public Library is excited to continue bringing you educational and entertaining programs from Lunch with Books and People's University. When all in-person Library programming was canceled on March 15, 2020, due to concerns over the potential spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, we were crushed. You missed us, and we missed you. The OCPL started a new online initiative to bring "Lunch With Books" to you virtually every Tuesday. Even though we are back to in-person programming, we have decided to continue broadcasting online, unless a speaker requests we not record their program. So now you can still attend Lunch With Books and People's University - even if you can't get to the Library!
Subscribe to the Lunch With Books YouTube channel or like us on the Lunch With Books Facebook page to receive notifications of our upcoming LWB broadcasts. Ask our presenters questions online during a live broadcast and they will answer them at the end of a program. Follow People's University on Facebook.
