one of your New Year’s resolutions to read more? Attend meetings of
the Georgetown Book Club, and you’ll read at least 12 great books this
year, plus have a chance to discuss them with your neighbors.
Between homework help and Family Chess Club, Thursday afternoons at Georgetown have gotten pretty popular. To make sure that various programs do not overlap or interfere with students working on homework, we have decided to move Music Time for Babies and Toddlers to 2 p.m. starting in February. Music Time will be held at 3:30 p.m. as it always has been for the rest of January. We hope that this does not cause any inconvenience and that all of our regulars keep attending. Don't forget about our storytimes at 10:30 on Monday and Wednesday morning as well!
Looking for a good book to read this winter? Please feel free to check out our latest arrivals, such as "Decoded" by Jay-Z or "Fall of Giants" by Ken Follett. If your still undecided just ask one of our Librarians and they will be glad to help.
Actors from the Georgetown Theatre Company will present readings of favorite holiday poems, stories and fables at the Georgetown Library next Tuesday, December 21, at 7:30 p.m. This free program is intended for all ages, though it might not appeal to very young children. Selections read will be chosen from the following beloved standards:
In 2005, Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for over 100 weeks. The memoir concerns her unconventional upbringing, which took place all over the country, from the deserts of Arizona to a coal town in West Virginia.
The New York Times Book Review has released their annual picks for the 100 best books of the year. If you've found yourself in a rut with your reading, you should be able to find something to interest you on the list, and of course most of these books are available through DCPL. Just search the catalog at the top right of your screen.
You can finally begin to unclutter your bookshelves (to make room for new acquisitions, naturally) and support your library at the same time. Our Friends group is now ready to accept book donations for the library book sale. Bring any books that are in good condition to our circulation desk for donation. No textbooks please.
