Get More Out Of LIFE At The Library!

2019 January/February

If one were to pluck problems like weeds from the soil of life, exposing the unseen roots feeding the thorns above, ignorance would be exposed as the footing of most troubles. Knowledge, therefore, is the weeding tool needed to nourish a verdant and varied garden of the mind and soul. And the gardening sheds with the sharpest and most superior tools are our public libraries.


The Importance of OUR Library

2019 January/February

Libraries are important. They always have been. They always will be. No matter what innovations beset us, be they printing presses, typewriters, computers, or holograms (maybe?), the idea behind libraries is ideas. And ideas will always save us.


A Street By Any Other Number

Numbering, as a way of naming streets, is a common and easy way to bring organization to the grid structure of most cities.


Cheers! to a New Year

2018 November/December

Shop Small & Win Big

2018 November/December

Christmas shopping is the time we think of the ones we love, looking for those perfect gifts to express our appreciation for those closest to us.


A Season of Hope, A Walk to Remember

2018 November/December

One of the season’s earliest events is Paducah’s advent walk. Organized by five of Paducah’s oldest churches, it is a time orchestrated to focus the hearts and minds of participants on the basis for the holiday season.


Hello Holiday Parade!

2018 November/December

We love a parade—and it’s even better when it celebrates the kick-off of the holiday season! The annual Paducah Christmas Parade is a throwback to yesteryear as hundreds of eager onlookers line Broadway between 2nd and 14th Streets to view a tradition nearly as old as the city itself.


What's UP in PADUCAH This Holiday Season?

2018 November/December

The Wild, Wild West

2018 September/October

Western Kentucky has always been a hunter’s paradise, with abundant game and lots of public land to roam. Paducah, a venerable old river town, is the ideal home base for these journeys of discovery.


For decades Kentucky hunters have looked west for dream trips afield.


Gather While Ye May

2018 July/August

Gather ye (rosebuds) while ye may.

—ROBERT HERRICK, 17th century


I’ve always been partial to this sentiment in both its literal and figurative influence.
