Book Club with a Twist

What is the Twist? Instead of having a book of the month, there is a theme or a genre of the month and the monthly discussion is based on that theme or genre. The theme is chosen randomly from the suggestion box located in the library. But wait there is more! In addition to discussing the theme of the month the group will plan a cultural gathering that connects to the theme. January theme: Biblical People January Biblical Field Trip - A Mediterranean Meal @ Yaffa's Savory February theme - Mystery/crime/suspense Next Meeting: Tuesday Feb. 25, 7:00 p.m. February Mystery Field trip - Adam's Dinner Mystery Play House March theme - Jews and Food March Field trip - Potluck dinner & and conversation.

Library Mitzvah Project - Greeting Cards

Last winter when I was delivering a food donation to the Gathering Place I noticed a box marked "Greeting Cards -please take only what you need". It was one of those moments when you realize that someone has to choose between buying a Birthday card or toilet paper. I had a box full of unused greeting cards at home and thought to myself how many other people have random unused greeting cards. It is such a painless mitzvah to collect cards and deliver a couple times a year. The Religious School students have been preparing meals and collecting hygiene products for the Gathering Place for years; the cards are just one more way that we can help support the women and children experiencing homelessness and/or poverty. Drop off your unused Greeting Cards at the library for the Gathering Place.
