On Friday, December 11, we’ll be hosting an Open House and Tea for Rochester Seniors. Transportation can be arranged through the Council on Aging. Seniors can meet the staff, get a library card, learn to use the SAILS online catalog, and learn about other options.

Cafe Parlez people please note: December Cafe Parlez will take place on Monday, December 28 at 6:30 p.m. In January, we will start a new theme: Cafe Parlez Goes to the Movies, with Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer. Read the book and/or watch the movie.
We’ve been hearing grumbling about the January “Just the Facts” selection of Bowling Alone. Apparently it is a bit dry. Here is a list of alternatives:
The Tyranny of Email: A 4,000-year-journey to your inbox, by John Freeman
Better Together: Restoring the American community, by Robert D. Putnam et. al.
Last Child in the Woods: Saving our children from nature-deficit disorder, by Richard Louv
The Great Good Place: Cafes, coffee shops, bookstores, bars, hair salons, and other hangouts at the heart of a community, by Ray Oldenburg
Just let the staff know which one interests you. Our discussion is in January. Don’t worry; our February selection more than makes up for the dryness of this one.
