Book Discussions for Everyone!

Have you tried one of our book groups yet?  We offer a variety of book groups that meet once a month for lively discussion on all types of books.

Our newest book group, led by Readers' Services Associate Nancy Buehler, meets Wednesday evenings, with the next meeting scheduled for November 3 at 7:30.  People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks, will be the book discussed.  Judy Levin leads our Wednesday afternoon book group as well as our Thursday evening nonfiction book group.  The next books in these series are The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks on November 10 at 1:00 and The Forger's Spell on  December 2 at 7:30.  We also team with the League of Women Voters for occasional book groups, and are having a discussion The Big Short by Michael Lewis on Thurs October 28 at 7:00.
We have lots of copies of these books so come on by and start reading!  Everyone is welcome - you do not have to be a Glencoe resident to attend one of our book discussions.

Kids, Parents and Technology Program

Join us on Tuesday, October 26 at 7:00 pm as child psychiatrist Dr. Eitan Schwarz presents on the subject of ways to manage kids' media consumption and shows how to use it to enhance their development and family life.  According to Dr. Schwarz, “without active parental planning and supervision, children consume junk media as they do junk food”.  Topics to be discussed will include how to monitor kids’ Internet and texting activity, social networking safety tips, how to talk with kids about what they may encounter on the Internet, and ways to block access to inappropriate sites. This program is for parents and caregivers only. A former Glencoe resident, Dr. Schwarz is the author of Kids, Parents & Technology: An Instruction Guide for Young Families, which can be checked out from the library’s collection.
