Appalachian History and Culture

August 27th from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Springboro Library. Opening seating.  Ages 13 and up.

This presentation defines the Appalachian region and explores the history of those who settled here.  It provides insights into the origins of Appalachian culture and beliefs; important historical events which shaped the region; and the roles absentee ownership and extractive industries continue to play in the region.


Every year Dayton Area libraries select a book for the community to read. Discussion groups and programming will take place in the Spring of 2016. We ask the community to help by voting on the four finalists.  Voting will take place in the library or online from September 13th through October 24th, so check back to cast your vote. 


The four book finalists are:

The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson
