January Book Discussion
Join us January 21, 11 a.m. at the Libby Library for “A Hot Drink and A Good Book,” our monthly book discussion. This month features Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. A prominent surgeon argues against modern medical practices that extend life at the expense of quality of life while isolating the dying, outlining suggestions for freer, more fulfilling approaches to death that enable more dignified and comfortable choices. Copies are available at the library.
Due dates for book discussion materials are final. If the book is more than 3 days overdue, the cost of the book may be charged to your account. Books for discussion are lent to us from libraries around the state and are often in demand by another library immediately following our use. In order to deliver book discussion kits to libraries in a timely manner, missing books must be replaced immediately. This cost is charged by the library that owns and lends the kit to the library borrowing the kit. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to absorb this cost.
We can always place a hold on a regular library copy of the book for you to check out and finish reading, if necessary. Please contact the library at 293-2778 if you have any questions. Thank you.
