New Displays! Plus, a Socratic Reminder
NEW DISPLAYS are just part of what’s going on this week at McAlester Public Library. Steve Adams provided photos, newspaper clippings and magazine articles about the life, incarceration and final resting place of Nannie Doss, the much-married female serial killer who met her end not by the electric chair, but by illness, at Oklahoma State Prison in McAlester. That’s on the regular local history display in the lobby (top photo). Next, we take a quick spin down Route 66 for a display about Oklahoma travel. Christopher Elliott created that one. Finally, (bottom photo) there’s an array of new nonfiction in the children’s section, shown in a display created by Krystal Baker.
Many events remain on the schedule through the end of May, including the regular monthly meeting of the Socrates Cafe. This month, Gary Gore has agreed to present the group with a short talk about Plato. Then, the discussion begins. What will be the question? Find out by attending, in the Conference Room from 10 a.m. to noon, on Tuesday, May 29.
