Storytime Registration Begins!

The Eaton Branch of the Preble County District Library will begin registration for the fall session of storytimes. Registration begins on Tuesday, September 3rd at 9 a.m. Our storytimes are formulated around the Every Child Ready to Read initiative, which focuses on the five early literacy practices of talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. 

Programming for 20-Somethings: Harry Potter Escape Room

Nautilus Quirrell is the son of Quirinus Quirrell, Hogwarts’ own infamous former Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. Professor Quirrell was killed in 1991 at the hands of Harry Potter. For this, Nautilus has vowed revenge on The Boy Who Lived. Nautilus made use of a time-turner to steal one of Voldemort’s horcruxes for safekeeping, returning it to the present, and threatening the very survival of the world.

Can you work your way through the clues and solve the mystery?

Teen Book Club - Pretty Monsters

The Teen Book Club selection for the month of October will be Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link!

From The Faery Handbag, in which a teenager's grandmother carries an entire village (or is it a man-eating dog?) in her handbag, to the near-future of The Surfer, whose narrator (a soccer-playing skeptic) waits with a planeload of refugees for the aliens to arrive, Link's stories are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world. 

Sign up in advance to receive a free copy of the book to read before the program!


Teen Book Club - Sadie

The Teen Book Club selection for the month of September will be Sadie by Courtney Summers!


A missing girl on a journey of revenge. A podcast following the clues she's left behind. And an ending you won't be able to stop talking about.

Sadie hasn't had an easy life. She's been raising her sister Mattie in a small town, trying to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water. But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie's entire world crumbles. Sadie is determined to bring her sister's killer to justice, and hits the road.
