This spring, the Georgetown Book Club will be delving into a genre that not everyone is familiar with: Alternate History. Sometimes related to science fiction, these books imagine a world like our own, but with unique differences caused by a historical event that occurred differently than it did in our world.
The Young Writers Group at Georgetown Library has been busy scribbling during the winter months. In March, we came up with some very interesting story ideas using picture dice. These dice have symbols on all sides. The writers rolled three dice and then came up with some story ideas based on combining the three pictures.
It's that time of year again: Spring has sprung and it's time to celebrate.Please join us on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. for a Springy Story Time, and decorate and stuff a few plastic eggs for your own treat.
What could be lovelier than Paris in spring? Join us this month for a healthy dose of escape with our April Film Series, Bon Cinéma, a celebration of French film. We will screen five contemporary films. The selections are spoken in French and subtitled in English.All movies are FREE and they begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays in the large lower-level meeting room.
Join us on Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m. for a discussion of the graphic novel adaptation of the Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini. Follow along as the novel details a childhood friendship during the final days of Taliban rule.
We frequently hear from customers that would love to join a book club but are simply too busy. Or maybe they cannot find a book club with a meeting time that matches their schedule. That is why DCPL has an online book club, where you can discuss books whenever you have the time, from your computer or smartphone.
