The American farmer's best friend for over 60 years, the voice the farming community heard every morning, is making an appearance at Harvard Diggins Library on Thursday, May 30 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Mr. Samuelson will be talking about his book You Can't Dream Big Enough and the stories of his sixty-plus years behind the microphone and in front of the camera informing those who get up with the chickens or make a living from those who do. There is no pre-registration but seating is limited. Those who wish to buy books or have one signed will be assigned numbers on arrival.
Check out our display case — we are displaying some beautiful hand-crocheted Frou Frou Scarves made by Beverly Hendle. Beverly is a member of the Friends of the Harvard Diggins Library and proceeds from the sale of these lovely scarves will go to help fund the Friends group. There are many lvoely combos of colors and each can be tied or draped in many ways to flatter any fashionable woman. At just $20.00 each they will add chic warmth to any wardrobe.
As of March 1, downloadable books for e-readers such as the Kindle™, Nook™, Kobo™, or Sony™ readers are available to Harvard Diggins Library card holders. Audiobooks can also be borrowed and downloaded to your computer or portable player.
