Summer Reading for Adults is well on its way at the Lexington Public Library. If you would like to join the fun, you can sign-up at the circulation desk. Then, after you read a book, fill out the rating form and turn it in--this will enter you in our weekly prize drawing. After Labor Day, we will have a grand prize drawing for Chamber Bucks.
An inspiring program "Called Again: An Evening with 2012 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year--Jennifer Pharr Davis" will be presented at the library on July 31 at 7:00 p.m. In 2011, two-time Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis wanted to test her limits. With the support of her husband, Brew, and a dedicated group of volunteers dubbed the "Pit Crew," Jen hiked, stumbled, and sometimes crawled the 2,181 mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days (an average of 47 miles per day), becoming the fastest person to hike the trail and the first woman to ever set the mark. But Jen's story is not about records or numbers; it's about endurance, faith, and most of all, love.
