Monday, September 9th, Kari Roueche, archives intern, will be giving a talk to the Kingsport Historical Society on the Muriel C. Spoden Collection. The group meets in the Eastman Boardroom at the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce Building at 9:30 am. The meetings are open to anyone, even if you aren’t a member, so please come and bring your friends!

The Kingsport Public Library is partnering with local businesses during the month of September (National Library Card Month) to increase library membership and promote the importance of shopping locally.
The campaign is called “KPL Means Business.” Customers who show their KPL card to participating businesses during September can take advantage of the discounts or special offers. If you are a local business and are interested in partnering with the library, go to http://www.kingsportlibrary.org/community-partners/ for more information and list of current partners/discounts.
