This month’s encore speaker in our Kentucky Live! Series is Nancy Richey, Special Collections Librarian at WKU. She’ll be discussing the “Images of Barren County” from her new book recently published by Arcadia Publishers.

Nancy is a native of Mt. Hermon, KY. She developed her interest in local and family history from her father with whom she spent many happy hours exploring her home county and learning about its history. Her ancestors first settled in the country in the Beaver Creek area in the 1790s.

nancy1She received her BA and MA degrees with an emphasis in Southern History from WKU and her Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Kentucky. She’s worked for the Department of Library Public Services and is currently the Reference and Image Librarian at the Kentucky Library and Museum.

She’s a board member of the Janice Holt Giles Historical Society where she acts as a docent at the Kentucky author’s home, now a museum, near Columbia, KY. She also serves as the Registrar for the Samuel Davies Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She gives frequent workshops on Kentucky genealogy.

Her book includes many never before seen photographs of Barren County’s rich historical culture, its religious and educational institutions, and ordinary family life that showcase why the county is considered one of the best places to live in rural America.

Her presentation is scheduled for this Thursday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. at WKU’s Glasgow Campus Library at 500 Hilltopper Way in Glasgow. A book signing and reception will follow. Please call WKU’s Glasgow Library at 270-745-6911 for more information or directions on how to get there.
