The Bradley County Bar Association and the Bradley County Law Library Commission will be holding another public forum in the Cleveland Bradley Community Room, June 30 at 7 p.m. titled, “Debtors and Creditors, Your Rights and Remedies.”

Some of the topics covered in this forum will be: “Can you stop or delay a foreclosure?”; “Garnishments, how do they work?”; “What is exempt from creditor attachment?”; “Collection letters, how to respond?” and “What options do I have when I owe too much?”

Attorneys volunteering their time and advice will be George McCoin, Rod Miller, Rex Wagner and Jack Tapper, who will be the moderator. Seating is limited, so call the library at 472-2163, ext. 126, to reserve your seat for this free event.

The summer reading program, “One World, Many Stories,” has spun an adult summer reading program called “Novel Destinations.” Signup is continuing for the adults as well as the children’s program.

“Novel Destinations” asks adult readers to read 12 books by July 29. In keeping with the theme, patrons are asked to read books about different places, people and cultures.

The books can be fiction or non-fiction. Reading logs are available in the Children’s department and when complete, patrons are asked to turn them back in to the Reference Department.

To help get you started here are some books about travel or other countries which have been highly reviewed: “Girl in Translation” by Jean Kwok, “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See, “The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain, Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson, Little Bee by Chris Cleave, “Half Broke Horses” by Jeannette Walls, “Cleopatra’s Daughter” by Michelle Moran, “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society” by Mary Ann Shafer and “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini.

The teen program has activities every Tuesday and Thursday evening in the Young Adult area from 7 to 9 p.m. On Saturday evenings, the library is open for teens only from 6 to 9 p.m.

Each week there is a different theme. Check our calendar on the website to get the latest activity going on for the teen group.
