Local Author Visit: Larry Ingle

Sunday, February 21, 2016 - 2:00pm


The Library is happy to present a bonus local author visit this month: Larry Ingle. A native of North Carolina, Larry Ingle is author of the recently published Nixon's First Cover-up:  The Religious Life of a Quaker President (University of Missouri Press).  It is the only study of the nation's 37th President that focuses on his life long membership at East Whittier Friends Church in Whittier, California and explores how his decisions during his career reflected his up-bringing as a Quaker.

Reel to Real

Sunday, February 21, 2016 -
4:00pm to 7:00pm

February will feature 2015's best (according to science) movie: Mad Max: Fury Road. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, you will ride eternal, shiny and chrome as you watch the best action movie in decades. Join Max Rockatansky and Imperator Furiosa as they battle the fiendish Immortan Joe and his War Boys. Compared to this masterpiece, all other 2015 releases are...MEDIOCRE! As usual, a discussion will follow the movie.

Rated R. 120 minutes.

2016 Reading Challenge


Looking for a new year's resolution? Take the 2016 reading challenge! Each month features 4 unique categories, and participation can range 1-4 per month. Staff went through exhaustive planning to create this year's challenge, and the results should pay off.
  • One per month = Non-conformist
  • Two per month = Bookworm
  • Three per month = Bibliophile
  • Four per month = Juking the stats
Please visit the Library's  page to participate, or feel free to take one of our reading challenge printouts at the front desk. We will monitor the Goodreads page and collect papers from those not on Goodreads at the end of the year.Those who complete all 48 categories (Juking the stats) in the year will be entered for a prize drawing.
Good luck! However, books cannot be used for more than one category. Every category should have its own unique title. That type of stats juking is frowned upon.
