  • Read Between The Wines

    By Daisy Hutzell-Rodman

    Several Glenwood women sat at Vine Street Cellars on a warm Thursday evening talking about books they recently read at “Read Between the Wines,” a book discussion group from the library.

    The group is the brainchild of adult services librarian Teresa Buckingham, who started the group in 2012.

    “It’s always been a dream of mine,” Buckingham said. “I can’t think of anything neater than getting together over wine and talking about books.”

  • City Opts For 'FM' Hearing Assist System

    An upgrade in technology is coming to Glenwood City Hall.
    The city council has given its approval to the installation of an “FM” assisted listening system and an audio visual system that can be utilized for guest presentations at council meetings and employee training sessions.

    The FM system transmits audio signals to a receiver worn by the listener - typically a headset or neck loop. The system complies with Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines, city administrator Brian Kissel said.
