Upcoming in December

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.  The tea will take place from 2:30-3:30 p.m., and refreshments will be provided by the Friends of Plumb Library

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.
