At the April 3, 2017 Rippey City Council meeting, they approved the appointment of Brenda Roberts to finish the term of Jo Bardole, who resigned in March.  Brenda has been a great supporter and volunteer over the years and will be a great addition to the roll of trustee


Shawneene tries to plan activities every week.  Be sure to call or stop in if there is one that peaks your interest.  She would welcome your suggestions and ideas you may want to happen at the library, that others would find interesting, too.  She needs the community's input to help the library be successful. Jean Borgeson, Board Member.

GREENE COUNTY READS APRIL 20, 2017 at the Rippey Library

We have the Greene County Reads books in and they are available for pickup. The book is " Fates and Traitors"  by Jennifer Chiaverini, the New York times best selling author of several acclaimed historical novels and of the beloved Elm Creek Quilt series.

This is a novel of John Wilkes Booth, who is often portrayed as a shadowy figure whose single murderous act made him the most hated man in America. This is the story of the four women whom he loved and who loved him in return. It is a must read!

There will be a Book discussion led by Jan Scharingson Thursday, April 20th at 2:00 p.m. at the Rippey Library, lasting an hour and a half. Author Jennifer Chaiaverini will join us via Skype during the discussion!
