Author Talk: Peggy Reiff Miller • Monday, October 3, 6:30 pm
Osolo Branch Library • 3429 E. Bristol Street • Elkhart

 

Come aboard and join local author Peggy Reiff Miller as she talks about the Seagoing Cowboys, volunteers who transported livestock across the ocean to people who were suffering the effects of World War II. Their mission was called the Heifer Project (now Heifer International). THE SEAGOING COWBOY, a children’s picture book written by Miller and illustrated by Claire Ewart, is the story of these volunteers.


peggy-reiff-miller-cropAbout the Author

Peggy Reiff Miller has been researching, writing, and speaking about the seagoing cowboys since 2002. Through interviews, questionnaires, diary accounts, photos, and movies of their trips, she has accumulated a wealth of information; much of it is documented on her website, seagoingcowboys.com. She lives in Goshen, Indiana. This is her first children’s book.

System Upgrade September 27

Administrator : September 7, 2016 1:57 pm : Elkhart Public Library

Polaris, the system that handles check-out, check-in, library catalog and more, will be upgraded on Tuesday, September 27. It will be offline for much of the day.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU

  • You will be able to check out materials at the circulation desks with your library card, as we have an offline check-out feature.
  • Self-check stations will not be available.
  • No material will be checked in until the upgrade is complete, so keep item limits in mind.
  • Our Library Catalog will not be accessible. Ask at a desk and we will do our best to help you find what you’re looking for.
  • No new or replacement library cards can be issued.books-card-computer
  • Public Internet computers will be available. If you normally sign in with your library card, ask at the desk for a guest pass.
  • Hoopla, Overdrive, Zinio and our Online Resources will be accessible.

If all goes well, we hope to be up and running by late afternoon. We appreciate your patience!
