Everyone's Poetry Contest: Adults, Teens & Kids


Friday, March 4, 2016 - 10:30pm

This contest  has been an annual event for some years and is always a huge success.  The date of the "reception" in which poetry and paintings are on display at the Port Orford Library is yet to be determined. Attendees vote on their favorite poems in each category. So check back at  regular intervals or  sign up for our news letter.  The event generates a lot of interest and disucssion as one part includes a matching of a painting to a poem- sometimes with surprizing  interpretations.



An Evening with Shannon Applegate


Saturday, March 5, 2016 - 7:00pm



This evening should prove to be superb. Shannon Applegate, well known historian and lecturer will discuss her most well-known book about the history of the Applegate family.

She is a direct descendent of a most famous early pioneer family and spent 17 years researching this book. The Applegates have a river, a valley, a trail, a house and a lake named after them.

You may also recognize Shannon as a member of the cowgirl band  Slow Ponies.

Please note: event is at the Langlois  Cheese Factory rather than the library.
