Mapping Your Genealogy with Diane L Giannini
Locating your ancestor’s land, pinpointing where they lived and mapping their movements is another part of your family’s story. We will explore various resources related to land and maps, talk about plotting migrations and creating maps using Google Earth. You will get ideas of how to incorporate maps into your family history. This program will be in Heritage Hall March 13th @ 5:00 p.m. Please RSVP to Charity parks by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 968-4368.

Pope County Library System Seeks Volunteers
The Pope County Library System (PCLS) is recruiting the 2014 class of volunteers to help in our programming, Circulation, Genealogy, Interlibrary Loan Departments and the Book Store in the Russellville Library.
PCLS serves an average of 350 people per day in its Russellville Branch and 700 per day during the Summer in its Headquarter library alone. Programming increased 70% in 2012 and 10% in 2013. The Russellville Library relied on 24 volunteers to help the system serve the 156,640 patrons who visited the libraries as the economy struggled to recover.
We are looking for creative, organized, team players who have a heart to serve and invite individuals, Civic Clubs, retirees, College and High School Groups and professionals who would like to do pro bono work such as assisting us in writing a: Public Services Plan, Building Facilities Plan, Advocacy Plan, Marketing Plan and a Fundraising Plan so we can prepare to expand the libraries 4 ½ times their size.
February Board of Trustees’ Meeting
The February Library Board of Trustees’ will be held Wednesday, February 19th in the Heritage Hall located next to the Russellville Public Library.
Accepting Book Donations
Patrons, please don’t forget, the Pope County Library System still accepts donations of books to use in our collections to help defray the cost of book purchases. These donations will help fill in holes in our collection, help stock the coming Book Store and Book Sales which will help raise money. We welcome book donations as we always have under the Bookmobile garage or at the front desk of any of our branches located in Atkins, Dover, Hector or Russellville. Thank you!
