Here’s a one minute video tour of the Visions of Lawrence exhibit currently on display at Lawrence Public Library! See it in person through next Thursday. 

Yeah, we love Netflix. But for as much content as they have, they don’t have everything. Luckily, there’s the library. Here’s a list of shows you can check out from Lawrence Public Library that aren’t currently available to stream from Netflix

Spike, our Board Cat, has made friends with some of the cats from downtown Lawrence businesses. He wanted them to be as distinguished and dapper as he does in his bow tie, so he got them some of their own! Dashiell and Ngaio from Raven Book Store and Mickey Roy and Sam from Love Garden are now sporting Business Catual cat bow ties, too! 

Formal request for an update with the cats of the Dusty Bookshelf.

Oh, we are so sad to report that Alice from the Dusty Bookshelf passed away earlier this year. After a mourning period they are planning to get a new cat and Spike will certainly want to make friends and get him or her a bow tie, too.

If you have fallen in love with the action and adventure and time travel romance set against the drama of Scottish history after watching Starz’s Outlander, we don’t blame you.
