Richland Public Library Presents John Bain

Wayland, IA Author of Christie’s Journey: The Beat Goes On

Saturday, January 22, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm


The Richland Public Library will be hosting Wayland author John Bain who will talk about his new book, Christie’s Journey: The Beat Goes On from Christian Faith Publishing.

This book is the true story of his family’s traumatic encounter with nearly losing his daughter to what was thought to be postpartum cardiomyopathy.  Instead, it was discovered that Christie had an unknown birth defect that caused her pulmonary artery to be connected to the wrong side of her heart. The book chronicles how the family’s faith helped them through their ordeal and serves as a reminder that miracles do happen and prayers are answered.

After the book talk participants will have a chance to ask the author questions about the book and his daughter’s experiences. Signed and personalized copies of John Bain’s book will be on sale.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please contact the library at 319-456-6541 or richlib@natel.net.


Keokuk County Community Endowment Foundation Awards a $5000.00 Grant to the Richland Public Library

The Richland Public Library was awarded a very generous grant by the Keokuk County Community Endowment Foundation to replace the old carpeting in the Meeting Room. The old carpet tiles were coming up and posed a safety issue to library visitors. The new carpet looks great!
