Christmas Reading
Our January book discussion was held on the 28th at the Kasino Club in Stanley. We appreciate Julie Rember for stepping in at the last minute to lead our discussion. We had an excellent discussion on The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest For Gold At the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown. The book begins with the story of one of those boys in the boat, Joe Rantz. Joe had an interesting upbringing, and with guts and determination earns a spot on the University of Washington's eight-oar crew team. Everyone at the discussion enjoyed this inspiring story.
Busy February
February is a busy month! Our monthly grown up coloring night was held this week, and all this week the materials to make a Valentine (or anti-Valentine) are set up in the community room.

Thursday the Stanley School students attended a Read'n'Feed after reading the book Homer Price by Robert McCloskey. The students made donuts and created labor saving devices.

Next Tuesday, February 16 auditions for Laugh Lines, humorous play readings, will be held at 5:30 at the library. These are play readings, so no memorization or prior acting experience is required. Everyone is welcome to audition, come with a funny joke to share. There will be a performance of the plays on Thursday, March 3 at The Sluice restaurant.

We will be showing a movie during Winterfest, Sunday the 21st at 11:00 am.

Knitting group will meet Tuesday, February 23 at 5:30.

Books, Burgers, and Brews will be held at Papa Brunee's on Thursday, February 25. Come between 5:30 and 6:00 to order food. We will be reading Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail by Cheryl Strayed. Books are available now for check out.

Friday the 26th is game night, we will be playing board games this month. All ages are welcome!
