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??

However the impact goes past a legal court.Nike LeBron James are increasingly being worn among the points of contemporary urban style, using trends from the '80s and refining those to be the higher fashion nowadays.

Wonderful landmarks were expected from him and excellent achievements he delivered - including a distinct shoes befitting an multiple MVP. Showcasing a number ofDwyane Wade most advanced technology and incorporating LeBron's personal inspirations and design styles, the LeBron brand of signature shoes have been seen for the feet of players worldwide. Today a lot ofNike Durant Kevin can be purchased primarily because of the brand that creates them or even the NBA player that wears them. This can be for those that intend to make a fashion statement, but why don't you consider the intense hoops player who wants an equally serious Adidas AdiZero Rose that may work with them? Taking an unconventional way of basketball shoes, Under Armour brings the Micro G Charge BB to the court while using promise of increased stability and an uninhibited flexibility. This high-topJordan Shoes should seem like a small-top, allowing the wearer to drive hard and cut quick using the support required to perform.

Furthermore, the Canadian laws are quite stringent
and require all pharmacies to sell prescription drugs only after checking or viewing a valid prescription
issued by a licensed physician. You can place your order online in these Canadian
Online Pharmacies. But you will not be able to achieve your ACLS
certification unless you attend a skills training and assessment class after you have completed your
initial online training. That first web browser introduced the
road for the growth as well as the progression of what's now referred to as the internet,
the humongous network of real information and
communication that has influenced the lives of huge numbers of people the world
over.
