Eagle library offers wealth of programs
Ryan Summerlin October 23, 2013
Eagle Public Library has some great adult programming events going on in November. These are free and open to the public, and are held in the library’s downstairs meeting room. So mark your calendar, and come join us at the library.
Thursday, Nov. 7, 6 p.m.
Eagle County Characters – Local author Kathy Heicher will present a PowerPoint history talk on her new book, “Eagle County Characters – Historic Tales of a Colorado Mountain Valley.” Her book features stories of courageous and sometimes outrageous pioneers who settled the Eagle Valley. Her talk will focus on Eagle and Gypsum characters. This will be followed by Q&A, refreshments, and an opportunity to purchase her book and have it autographed. This is a great idea for those of you looking for a special Christmas gift!
Friday, Nov. 15, 10:30 am.
Our monthly Poetry is for Fun group meets in the small meeting room upstairs. Poetry writers and readers are welcome to share original poetry, poems by others, or just simply come in and listen.
Sunday, Nov. 17, 1 p.m.
As part of the Eagle Library’s Sunday matinee series, we will feature the movie “Spanglish” (PG), followed by refreshments and a film discussion led by Jay Wallace, who is often a guest pastor at the Eagle United Methodist Church. “Part of going to the movies together is sharing what we thought of them, and what ideas or issues they generated”, said Wallace. “These conversations may generate pertinent questions and deep discussions that help us decide what is important to us and to our community.”
Wednesday, Nov. 20, 11 a.m.
Add an extra dimension to your garden by attending “Gardening is for the Birds.” Jerry Fedrizzi, an Eagle County birder, will discuss fascinating lore about local native and migratory birds, the habitat that attracts them to your garden, and the many perks they may offer the gardener and wildlife observer. Jerry has long been involved in Roaring Fork Audubon and participates in an informal Eagle County birding group, which takes field trips and sponsors the Christmas Bird Count. Gardeners on the Go, a local gardening group, is co-sponsoring this program at the library.
Monday, Nov. 25, 6:30 p.m.
The library’s book club typically meets the fourth Monday evening of each month, and November’s title is “Rules of Civility” by Amor Towles. The public is welcome.
Eagle Public Library offers a wealth of programs for all ages. Please consider attending any (or all) of these free programs next month. For more information, call me at 970-328-8800.
