Anyone who resides in or owns property in Daviess County is entitled to a free library card. If you are out of county, you can purchase an out of county card for $20 per year. The classes are free and open to library patrons, but you must call or drop in the library to sign up ahead of time as the class size is limited to 20. 

This class is in part sponsored by donations made in memory of Janet Selby. Janet was an avid library patron, reader and bridge player. She passed in November 2017 at the age of 95, but kept her mind sharp throughout her years by reading and playing bridge. You too can learn this fun and challenging game and in the process make some friends and sharpen those synapses! Library instructor Jolene is knowledgeable and patient. The class will be fun, focused and social.  Call the library today to sign up.
