It's a fresh kind of book club! Check out any cookbook of your choice from our collection. Make one or more of the recipes and bring your book and food to our potluck meeting.

Sarah Jessica Parker Book Club
First meeting Wednesday, October 18th
12 noon
Western Americana Room
Pick up books now

We’re starting up a different kind of book club, based on Book Club Central, a new initiative of the American Library Association that was designed to provide the public with the very best in reading. It’s a quarterly book club in which award-winning actor, producer, and avid reader Sarah Jessica Parker is the honorary chair. Ms. Parker will select books throughout the year to share her joy of reading and discussing good books with readers everywhere. The book club will begin in Pinedale during October and meet four times a year.

I have always loved to read for the same reason I love to act, which is that other people’s stories are more interesting to me than my own.
- Sarah Jessica Parker

Come in and pick up a copy of the first book, No One Is Coming to Save Us, by Stephanie Powell Watts, for our discussion in October. For more information, contact Judi Boyce at the library, 367-4114 or jboyce@sublettecountylibrary.org.

Statistics and figures are great for reports, but your stories and photos better illustrate "a day in the life" of a library and help decision makers understand how valuable libraries are to their communities. See a few of the pictures we captured of Pinedale Library patrons using their library!
