SEPTEMBER 10: Fredericktown Senior Citizens-12 noon ./ KCSPC 2ND ANNUAL SURVIVOR OF SUICIDE DINNER AND VIGIL / The award-winning documentary film, “The Fruit Hunters,” will be the focus of the first Brown Bag Chat of the fall season on Wednesday, September 10, noon, at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. The 94-minute film tells the story of “The Fruit Hunters”—fruit obsessed advocates who travel the world in search of rare and exotic fruits. From the jungles of Borneo to the hills of Umbria, scientists, adventurers and even residents of the Hollywood Hills join in the search for the next ultimate juicy delicacy, and find ways to preserve seeds to ensure the next generation can enjoy its own “Garden of Eden”. Without such culinary fanatics, fruits such as the banana, kiwi, pineapple, pluots, pomegranates and star fruit would still be considered exotic instead of being readily available on store shelves. The program is free and open to the public. Tasty samples of fruit and beverages will be served. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch. For information, call the main library at 740-392-2665, visit or email

Free and open to all ages. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch. Refreshments provided. For information, call 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit or email / The box office hit, “The Fault In Our Stars” (PG-13), will be the free movie night feature on Wednesday, September 17, 6:30 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon, 201 N.

SEPTEMBER 24: "Out of the Darkness: Suicide Prevention and Awareness," will be the topic of a "Things I Wish I Knew" series Brown Bag Chat on Wednesday, September 24, noon, at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. With the loss of Robin Williams, one of the most beloved and funny actors our time, to the ravages of depression and the abyss of suicide, many are asking how to recognize the warning signs in themselves and in family or friends to prevent such tragedy. How can one distinguish between “just feeling down” and depression? What are the pros and cons of prescription medication? Who is out there to help? Dodie Melvin, director of the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI)-Knox & Licking Counties, and members of the Knox County Suicide Prevention Coalition will lead a frank discussion and host a question and answer session for all ages on suicide prevention, depression and mental health awareness, and support for sufferers and families. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch. Refreshments provided. For more information call 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit, or email
