Library benefit to bring out some local authors

"I think it's pretty amazing," said Dragoon of the authors coming to the benefit. "It's going to be great for them because it's a great opportunity for them to showcase their talent."

The benefit will also include a Chinese auction, book sale, and Lilly the therapy dog.

"Alex Lamberton has a therapy dog where she comes to the library and she has students who are afraid of reading ... read to the dog,"said Dragoon. "She's going to be there representing the program so people are aware of it."

"I believe she has seven students right now she's been working with regularly and now are starting to sign out books [from the library]," she added.

With the different types of events being held at the benefit, Dragoon believes it is truly a family event.

"I think it's going to be a great community event that is one that doesn't happen very often to get so many authors in one area," she said. "It's a way to bring the family together. With all these electronics, we're getting away from books and I think we need to return to books and old ways and traditional ways of learning."
