On October 19 at 6:30 PM, the Friends of the Library, who support the work of the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library, will hold its Annual Meeting by hosting a talk by an expert on Amish life.

Dr. Paul Gaus, an Ohio author who has published Amish mysteries based on 35 years of observation and conversation with the Amish folk of Holmes County, will speak. His stories present a view of life among the Old Order Amish, a life rarely shown to strangers. During his presentation he will share tales of interesting experiences with the Amish people he has met over the years.

This event will take place at 6:30 PM in the Library’s Community Room. It is open to the public.

According to the Library website, the Friends of the Library provide financial assistance by supplementing the library’s income in the purchase of specific equipment and materials for library use. Friends provide volunteer assistance for special events including the annual Summer Library Program, legislative events and special projects.
