Find monkeys, history at the VZC Library

Monkey Business! If you're ready to find out about the business that monkeys take part in, come to Preschool Storytime 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 7. Miss Rhonda will be reading about monkeys at the Van Zandt County Library.

If your child is in the older group, Dog Days at the Library will be held at 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12. The children have a chance to read to the most patient and adorable audience ever- dogs.

For the adult library patron, at 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10 the second Friends of the Library meeting will take place. Canton Mayor Lou Ann Everett will be portraying Belle Wood, in a one-woman dramatization of the Diary of the Runaway Scrape of 1835.

This is the story of a turning point in the Texas War for Independence from Mexico. Mayor Everett is a retired college professor; and her interest and knowledge of history is extensive. Even those who are not interested in history will come away looking for more information about this period of Texas history; and the library is a good starting point.
