Comedian Groucho Marx is attributed as saying “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”
Jim Weise is outside of a dog in a big way.
Weise was among those who helped re-establish Friends of the Hardin County Public Library last May, and he became president of the organization.
“We started out with a book sale and had a second book sale,” Weise said.
After the second book sale, membership grew from around 25 to about 67, he said.
