William Powell and Clearview Golf Course

Renee Powell, LPGA member, Clearview's Head Golf Professional and teacher, and daughter of William “Bill” Powell, will talk about her father and his historic Clearview Golf Course in East Canton on Tuesday, July 28, from 10 to 10:45 a.m., in the Children’s Program Room. Bill Powell decided to build his own golf course—for people of all colors—after he experienced racial discrimination on the golf course upon his return home from the military in World War II.

Make-A-Car for the Drive-In Movie

Children of all ages are invited to make and decorate their own cardboard box car on Tuesday, July 7, from 10 to 11 a.m., in the main library Children’s Program Room.
