Programs and Services
Coffee and Books!
A morning time (caffeinated!) book discussion. Meetings take place on the 2nd Friday of each month at 10:00 am.
Coffee and Books
What if ...
... everybody read the same book?
... readers had multiple opportunities, both formal and informal, to talk with each other about the book?
... a wide variety of agencies came together to sponsor these opportunities, thus declaring that reading is not only a source of individual pleasure, but a tool for community building?
... the author joined the community in discussion?
Each year libraries in the Lapwai, Pullman, Moscow, Colfax, Palouse, St. John, Nez Perce, Asotin, Pomeroy and Dayton communities come together to read, discuss, and participate in various programs centered around the selected Everybody Reads book. The author visits the region and speaks at numerous events the 2nd week of November.
A program intended to spark intellectual curiosity! Held on the last Saturday of each month at 2:00 pm this program might feature a guest speaker, music, a craft or game - perhaps a bit random, but always good fun!
