“Williamstown Reads World Book Night” was part of the Ainsworth Public Library’s “World Book Night” activities.  The book discussion of “My Antonia” by Willa Cather was held Wednesday May 15 at The Williamstown Gardens. Members of the Williamstown Readers Group and other community members were joined by Regina Ritscher (second from right) who facilitated the discussion. We also had a surprise guest when former librarian Flora O’Hara joined the group. This is the second year that the Ainsworth Public Library has been a World Book Night giver.
