Northwest Ohio Narratives
The Northwest Ohio Narratives is a program designed by NORWELD to videotape local oral histories. Since the program's inception in 2006, over 290 interviews from 16 libraries on topics ranging from World War II to the impact of the railroad have been recorded. A direct link to Rossford's videos.
Tuesday Book Club
October's book is A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story by Qais Akbar Omar. The club will meet on October 14 at 10 am in the community room.
A young Afghan man's searing and redemptive memoir of his family and country -- the horrors and perils he faced, his imprisonment, and quiet resistance -- reveals the truth about life in a country whose history has become deeply entwined with our own but has, until now, eluded our understanding.
