The Hobo Convention

In years past, a hobo camp, sometimes called a jungle, existed just outside Valley Falls. Hoboes were usually men, traveling the American highways and railroads working their way to places they had yet to find.  Your children, ages 6-12 years old, have an opportunity to experience this piece of history at The Hobo Convention, Saturday October 15th on the Valley Falls Library lawn.

Registration is required, and space is limited to 20 children, so register early!! You can pick up your registration form at the library. The fee is $5.00/child, or $7.00/family. Registrations must be received by 10/3/16. 

For more information, contact Janet Weber at or call 753-6131.

The 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s Program


The warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease are often dismissed as inevitable parts of normal aging. If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it’s time to learn the facts. Early detection is the key to improving quality of life for anyone affected by memory impairment. Attend this interactive workshop to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer’s disease where we separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer’s and dementia. Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.
Appropriate Audience – Anyone who is interested in learning the warning signs of Alzheimer’s, and a little information about Alzheimer’s disease.

The Library will be hosting a program on the Things You Need to Know about Alzheimer’s. Come and hear from our guest speaker, Molly McCann on  October 26, 2016 at 6:30pm.
