Books! Books! Books!

WPL Brown Bag Book Club

Paula Walters - Monday, March 19, 2012

 North Central Regional Library has wonderful book clubs.  Last week I posted a newspaper article that our Entiat librarian Esther wrote regarding her club which is celebrating  that they have read 100 books.  Wow !! 100 books!! If you have not read the blog please do as the celebration includes a "one book read" of Laura Hillenbrand's best selling book, Unbroken. 

I love to hear from books clubs.  I know that the club that meets at the WPL has been helping out in the community and I asked the leader Kathy to write a bit to tell us what they have done.

 

 

The NCRL Brown Bag Book Club has been meeting for 10 years at the library. They meet the third Wednesday of each month from noon to 1 PM. The current membership is 29 members of various ages with an average of 15 to 20 people attending each month. New members are always welcome. Each month’s selected book brings plenty of invigorating discussion and often times sharing of how the story relates to their lives. For a group so large it is truly incredible how everyone is respectful of each other’s opinions and everyone has an opportunity to talk. The book lists grows as members suggest a specific book and/or author. In December they donate household items to Wenatchee’s Haven of Hope. In January 2012 they read Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. They were so inspired by the great organizations available to help women that the group decided to donate to Kiva, a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.The group read the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett earlier last year and when the movie was released a group from the club went to the movie and out to dinner to discuss their reaction to the movie version of the book.

 

I met with the group in December and yes it is amazing how such a large group works so well together, giving everyone a chance to speak.  I would love to hear from more books clubs, how long you have been meeting, what makes your group work, what books you enjoy, etc??
