LIBRARY NEWS: Shell Rock Author, Linda Betsinger McCann, author of Lost Butler County: Vanished Towns of the Cedar Valley, is coming to the Kothe Memorial Library on Tuesday, Sept. 9th at 7 PM. Her new book Prohibition in Eastern Iowa looks at the 13 year span of time known as "Prohibition" through the eyes of Eastern Iowa townspeople and others. From farmers who grew corn used in making illegal liquor, to bootleggers who trafficked it and the gangsters who sold it, Eastern Iowa saw it's fair share. The Library has a copy available to check out, or for those interested, Linda will have books to purchase. All are welcome for this event, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Parkersburg Library.
