CULLMAN, Ala. – With the new year beginning, The Tribune reached out to the Cullman County Public Library to see what’s coming up in January.

Library Outreach Coordinator Willette Harbison said the library’s Book Mobile will return to its route Jan. 8, 2020.

“There’s 2,444 books on the Book Mobile,” she said. “I go to four different schools- Cullman Christian, Vinemont Christian and I go to two homeschools, Legacy down at Crosshaven Church and I also go to Classical Connections up on Highway 157. We also go where we’re invited.”

Also happening Jan. 8, author Rosemarie Reinhard Musso will be at the library at noon to share her experiences in Nazi Germany and how she learned to forgive. Musso’s book is “Father Forgive Them- the Four Laws of Forgiveness: Memories of Survival During WWII in Nazi Germany.” This presentation was rescheduled from this past October.

Harbison also talked about the Children Services Book Reading Program.

“Every Monday and Tuesday of the month, we have a children’s program here at 10 a.m., usually here,” she said. “We have community leaders come out from different places that read to the children. And then Ms. Polly Easterwood comes once a month, and there’s not sitting or standing room; she’s big on coming out, she does music.”

Continuing on Jan. 15 will be the Bifocal Program.

“It’s a program where I go out to assisted living homes, right now I’m just serving Morningside and we just have a great time,” smiled Harbison. “It might be a holiday, things of the past, but we’ll have like a 20-minute program and then we will just discuss things they did when they were younger and how they came up through the (Great) Depression; most of these people did, and they’ll tell me stories and I just enjoy it so very much.”

Other library events happening in January include: Family History this Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020 at 10 a.m.; Children Services Book Reading Jan. 6, 2020 at Panera Bread at 10 a.m. (Also occurs every Monday and Tuesday of the month at 10 a.m. at the library); 2020 Census Recruiting, Jan. 7 and 9 from 5-8 p.m. and Medicare Seminar, Jan. 11, 2020.

Harbison said schools or other organizations interested in having the Book Mobile make a stop should call 256-734-1068.
