Reading, Learning, and Community Involvement: Gulf Coast Reads @ Jacinto City Branch Library

Jacinto City Branch Library is hosting two programs this week as part of the Gulf Coast Reads series of events. This endeavor provides an opportunity to participate in a community-wide discussion by reading and sharing views about the same book. Sharing this goal encourages community members to make reading, learning and community involvement a lifelong pursuit.

The events include a discussion of this year’s book selection, News of the World by Paulette Jiles, and a movie presentation. Join us on Thursday, October 19th at 10:15 AM for show-and-tell book discussion. Library staff will briefly show how to find documents and photographs relevant to our book using HCPL electronic resources. The presentation will be followed by a book discussion. On Saturday, October 21st at 1:00 PM we will show the movie True Grit (2010, PG-13). 

All events are free and open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
