Library Doings

From Jane Carlin, exciting information about what’s shaking at our library:
1. Collins Memorial Library hosts local author Erica Bauermeister as part of Pierce County Reads.

Ms. Bauermeister holds a PhD from the University of Washington and is the author of 500 Great Books by Women: A Reader’s Guide and Let’s Hear it for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14; she has also taught writing and English at the University of Washington. The School of Essential Ingredients is her first work of fiction, and has already been published in 19 countries. She describes the book: “It’s about food and people and the relationships between them – about taking those “unimportant” bits of life and making them beautiful..” The book has received an abundance of critical acclaim: Publisher’s Weekly described it as a remarkable debut. We are so fortunate to have this talented local writer with us on Thursday evening January 28th from 7 to 8 in room 020 Collins Memorial Library. Light refreshments will be served.
Please bring a non perishable food item to the event.

Learn more about Erica here.

2. The Library has lots of new ways to connect with students, including two blogs: Collins Unbound offers news and updates about services, books, and reading.
Library Logged features student comments.
Our tech-savvy Library also offers a YouTube site, Facebook and Twitter feeds. Find links to all of these new tools on the main library site.
