Wyanet library announces upcoming events

WYANET — The R.A. Sapp Library’s computer class will meet at 1 p.m. Tuesday. The public is welcome to bring any and all questions for our computer guru to answer and/or help with.

The Wyanet Library’s 2nd Thursday@the Library program on Thursday will present Brian “Fox” Ellis, storyteller extraordinaire, acclaimed author and historian, as he performs Walt Whitman’s Lincoln: Whitman’s Memories of the Civil War and Our Greatest President.

Just three days before the anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination, Ellis steps into Walt Whitman’s shoes to offer an intimate view of Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War and Whitman’s best loved poetry. Ellis will tell stories and read poetry about this vital moment in our nation’s history including an eyewitness account of the evening in Ford’s Theater. The program, which is sponsored by the Illinois Humanities Council, starts at 6:30 p.m. As always, refreshments will be available.
