Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – September 2018

Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – September 2018

Library events LogoHello everyone, exciting news: the 2018 One Book One San Diego pick was recently announced!  This year’s title is the graphic novel March: Book One, by Congressman John Lewis. One Book, One San Diego is a community reading program managed by KPBS in partnership with the San Diego County Library and the San Diego Public Library. The purpose of the program is to encourage residents to join together in the shared experience of reading and discussing the same book. The program also encourages participation in related events, discussions of the ideas raised in the featured books, and examination of how these ideas connect with our daily lives and local communities.

The first in a series of three, March: Book One is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis’ lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis’ personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement.

We are celebrating One Book One San Diego with a fun all-ages event on Saturday, September 22 at 2 pm. Artists from Little Fish Comic Book Studio will talk about the trend of comics that address social issues, then lead a workshop on creating your own comics! All materials will be provided and the workshop is free.

As always, many thanks to the Alpine Library Friends Association for their continuing support of our library. Visit the ALFA Bookstore and help support our collection and programs.  Bookstore hours are Tuesdays, 10 AM – 7:30 PM and Wednesdays – Saturdays, 10 AM – 4:30 PM.

As a final note, September is National Library Card Month, and to celebrate we are waiving fees for replacement library cards. If your card is worn out, or you just want a different color, now’s your chance to get a new one.

The Alpine Library is located at 1752 Alpine Blvd, Alpine, CA 91901. For more information call (619) 445-4221 or email Jenne Bergstrom. Visit our website at www.sdcl.org and our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/AlpineLibrary
