At the library

  • Columbia Branch's Book Group meets on the first Wednesday of the month. The Group will be discussing War Trash by Ha Jin. Next month's book will be The Beautiful Things that Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu. You can pick up a copy of each month's book group book by asking at the librarian's desk.
  • Mark your calendar for First Thursday Family Night — Thursday, March 6 from 6:30-7:30pm. We'll share a few short stories and have craft and literacy activities for kids from birth to about 12. Play with the doll house, play games, make signs, create paper flowers, collages and maybe do some origami — regular or Pokemon (We've known teenagers and adults to enjoy the stories and crafts too!)
  • Storytime is on hiatus for the month of March as Miss Nancy conducts Global Reading Challenges with 4th and 5th graders in four local public schools. Storytimes will resume on Friday, April 4th at 10:30am.
  • Play and Learn will meet all through the month of March from 11:30am to 1pm on Fridays. We invite children from birth to age 5 to attend with their parents or other caregivers. It is free and it's fun! Come for all or part of the session.

As we gear up for BeatWalk's 13th season, there are some issues we need to look at and make decisions about. I would love to have your input, whether you've ever been to a BeatWalk or not. The survey is short, and I would really appreciate your taking a couple minutes to fill it out. The survey is only up from now until Sunday, March 9.

Take the survey to help shape the future of this community event.

A volunteer cedar tree seeded itself too close to our house and needs a new home. It's about 6 feet high now, I really don't want to cut it down! We're 1 block from Orca at Columbia. Thanks!
