Stop by the Logansport Branch Library throughout the month of June to see this cool, summer display. You won’t see a hermit crab when you view this display, but you will see some of their shells, other seashells and a beach scene.

Book Donated to Library

Local author, Barbara Walsworth, donated her book, “The Red Dirt Road,” to the Mansfield Main Library.

“The Red Dirt Road” is a dramatic portrayal of a family’s struggle to overcome poverty, loss and grief. In the summer of 1962, 14-year-old Partheny Preiste’s abusive, alcoholic father moved his family from southwest Texas to the backwoods of northwest Louisiana and then immediately abandons them. While struggling for the basic necessities, they discover someone is watching from the surrounding woods. And, even more disturbing, they learn of the recent murder of a small black child found in the swamp behind their shanty. What this evil wants and takes almost destroys this family. They battle to keep their faith and stay strong in the face of a heartbreaking tragedy and bring a murderer to justice.
