The Flora Public Library, in cooperation with Fur a Good Paws, will be sponsoring a pet food drive, “Feed the Furry,” again this year.  The library’s 7th annual pet food drive begins Monday, September 19 and will end Friday, October 29.  October is Adopt-A-Pet month, too. 


Pet food items, suitable for dogs or cats, may be dropped off at the library during regular operating hours.  Currently, canned and dry food, primarily for cats and kittens, is needed.  All pet food is welcomed.  In addition to food, donations of scoopable and non-scoopable cat litter, and cleaning supplies, such as paper towels, Chlorox Wipes, vinegar, bleach, flea medicine, and large trash bags, would be very helpful.

 Fur a Good Paws is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Clay County that provides a licensed no-kill rescue that cares for homeless pets. The group is grateful to have received a donated building that is being remodeled as its rescue and pet adoption center. The cat area is finished and plans are underway to begin remodeling of the dog area.  The group promotes spaying/neutering and pet adoptions to reduce the number of homeless pets in the community. For more information, visit  They are also on Facebook.

Hours at the library are:  Monday – Thursday 1:30 to 8:30, Friday 10:00 to 6:00 and Saturday 10:00 to 3:00.  For more information please call the library at 662-6553.  Donated items will assist Fur a Good Paws in helping rescue animals and other needy dogs and cats.  Please help our four-footed friends by giving to “Feed the Furry”.

Saturday, September 3, 2016
12:00 – 3:00pm

Flora Public Library will host a book signing by local author, Angela Conrad, on Saturday, September 3, from 12:00-3:00pm.  Angela, who has Flora ties, will be signing her book, “Two Brothers, One Journey:  the Loving, Lonely Struggles of an Autism Mom”.  She is the daughter of Jim and Aleta Tackitt and niece of Bob and Barb Tackitt. 

Angela Conrad’s two young sons, Andrew and Trenton, have both been diagnosed with autism, wrecking any chance she can have a normal family life. Every day Angela has a mountain to climb 24/7, just to get somewhere close to keeping her children safe and happy and keep her house from looking like a war zone.  This is her story of how she has battled the effects of a life-changing condition and learned how to handle an insensitive world.   The book is a moving, inspiring read for all those whose lives are touched by autism.

“Everyone deals with storms in their life. The storm I live every day isn’t an easy storm by any means, but it could be worse. Nonetheless, it is my storm. I own it and I will make the most of it. Dance in your storm!”

Angela is a former special education teacher turned autism mom for her two sons. She is a freelance writer for, Autism Parenting Magazine, Her View From Home, & The Mighty. She is the lead volunteer leader for Autism Speaks in Terre Haute, Indiana and dedicates every day to raising awareness and educating the world on autism.  Angela’s strong faith in God is what gets her through the daily struggles of autism.  She is a celebrated speaker in the area of autism and special needs. “I truly believe we all have a purpose in life. Mine was to raise two boys with autism and to make an impact in the world of autism!  It’s not how I would have planned my life but God knows what is best!  I will praise his glory till the day I die for giving me my two angels :)”
