December at the Bainbridge Island Library begins with the First Friday Artwalk, Friday December 5th, featuring Dorothy Matthews' exquisite watercolors of Nutcracker images. But that's only the beginning!
On Saturday, December 6, from 11 am to noon, talented Bushwick Book Club musicians will perform original music inspired by Dickens' Christmas Carol.
The Island Film Group will bring Jimmy Stewart's classic comedy, The Shop around the Corner, to the library at 7 pm on December 10th, and the Ferry Tales meeting on the 4:40 boat from Seattle December 11th will discuss Warmth of Other Suns, by Isabel Wilkerson. Be sure to join them as they discuss this beautifully written chronicle of one of the great untold stories of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the south for northern and western cities, in search of a better life.
The Waterfront Book Group will meet Tuesday, December 16, at the Waterfront Park Community Center to discuss Lois Lowry's The Giver. For a special pre-Christmas treat: on Tuesday December 23rd you can schedule a free half-hour appointment with human resources consultant and leadership coach Josy Koumans to review your resume, improve your interview techniques, or discuss your future career plans.
All this and more -- including storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and the ever-popular Book-a-Computer-Trainer -- available for you this month at the Bainbridge Island Library: don't miss it!
And a special note: the Library will be closed December 24th and 25th, and will close at 5 December 31st. Happy Holidays from your Bainbridge Island Library!
