Librarian's project: Bars and books
RIVER FALLS - Call it 21st century library outreach. There's a new book club in town, and it's coming to a bar near you.
And that's not a misprint.
River Falls Public Library aide Heather Johnson has boosted the visibility of the Adult Summer Reading Program with a book club for those 21 and over.
The novel aspect of this club is that it'll meet at a different local bar each month of summer for a relaxing book discussion.
