Join us at 7 p.m. May 23, 2018, at New Riff Distilling in Newport, Ky., for Good Food • Good Drinks • Good Books, the signature event of Friends of Steely Library that raises scholarship money to support NKU students. Just think: You can help protect and preserve the future of libraries simply by attending a social event!
The Good Food will be provided by a fabulous local caterer. The Good Drinks will be provided by New Riff. And the Good Books will feature Coach Kenney Shields' new book "Nothing More, Nothing Less, Nothing Else" and an additional author to be named later. Brad Myer and Michael Sharfe will provide musical entertainment.

VIP Reception/Tasting - Held in a unique, private space at 6 p.m., an hour prior to the event.
Libraries are in danger, and qualified, trained library professionals are needed to save them. Your $100 entry fee will help train the superheroes who will lift libraries to the next level and take libraries and their information systems well into the future.
In addition to helping students earn a bachelor’s degree in library informatics, your contribution will help fund Steely Library’s “Bridging the Gap: Supplying the Next Generation of Librarians,” which has helped dozens of library employees throughout rural Kentucky and West Virginia to earn degrees online, often the only employees at their libraries to have library science degrees.
