The Purcell Public Library is hosting “Information Investigation: Genealogy Help at the McClain County Museum” Saturday, February 11, from 1-3 p.m.

Our world is full of information. Learn how to find and identify credible information on genealogy in this program for adults.

The  museum is located at 203 W. Washington St. in Purcell.


The Purcell Public Library will host “Behind the Story: Author Talk with Lana Harper, Back in a Spell” from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, February 9.

Join library staff for a magical evening with New York Times bestselling author Lana Harper as she discusses the third installment of her immensely popular The Witches of Thistle Grove series, Back in a Spell.

Back in a Spell follows Nineve Blackmoore and even though she won’t deny her love for pretty (and pricey) things, Nineve Blackmoore (known by Nina by most) is almost painfully down-to-earth and sensible by Blackmoore standards.

But after a year of nursing a broken heart inflicted by the fiancée who all but ditched her at the altar, the powerful witch is sick of feeling low and is ready to try something drastically different: a dating app.

At her best friend’s urging, Nina goes on a date with Morty Gutierrez, the nonbinary, offbeat soul of spontaneity and co-owner of the Shamrock Cauldron.

Their date goes about as well as can be expected of most online dates—awkward and terrible. To make matters worse, once Morty discovers Nina’s last name, he’s far from a fan; it turns out that the Blackmoores have been bullishly trying to buy the Shamrock out from under Morty and his family.

This is a virtual program and registration with an email address is required by calling 405-527-5546 or online at pioneerlibrarysystem.org.
