James Naismith Came to Ashland!

 James Naismith (portrayed by Bill Worley) visited the Ashland City Library on April 19.   Naismith, inventor of basketball and first coach of the famous KU Jayhawks, gave a short program, taking questions and discussing the origins of the game.  The library thanks Nathan Shupe for making a basketball and hoops available to enthusiasts.
