Start Reading Now- Book-to-Action in December

Monday, December 03, 2018

Start reading now for the Public Library of Steubenville and Jefferson County’s Book-to-Action program that starts in December.  Book-to-Action takes a book beyond discussion and puts it into action with related programs and a community service project. The featured book is “The Chicken Runs at Midnight” by Tom Friend that  introduces us to former Major League Baseball coach and Steubenville native Rich Donnelly whose dying daughter’s words changed his heart for good.

All programs will be at the Schiappa Branch.  Registration is required for programs by calling the library at 740.264.6166.


Book Signing on Monday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. Rich Donnelly will discuss and sign copies

of the book. “The Chicken Runs at Midnight” may be purchased at the library the evening of

the program for $26.80 from the Historic Fort Steuben.


Book Discussion on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. Join us at the library to sit and

discuss the book. Refreshments included. Books are available for checkout at the Schiappa

Branch. Books for purchase are available at the Historic Fort Steuben.


Messages from Loved Ones on Monday, Dec. 10 at 6 p.m. “The Chicken Runs

at Midnight” is a book that will strengthen your faith and remind us that God sometimes

speaks to us through signs if we’re willing to listen. Do you have a story of faith or received

a message from a loved one that changed your life and that you would like to share? Carol

Borkoski who has been “seeing” and talking to angels for more than 25 years will facilitate

this conversation.


Learn about Cancer on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 4:30 p.m. Dr. John Hyland, Radiation

Oncologist at Trinity Health System’s Tony Teramana Cancer Center will visit the library to

discuss various types of cancer and treatment.


Community Service During the month of December you can drop off a canned

food item at any PLSJ branch location for the Cancer Dietary Initiative in Steubenville. This

non-profit organization is a food pantry that distributes food to local cancer patients

undergoing treatment and their families. Look for the plastic container at the library.
