From January 1st to January 31st, Marshes of Glynn Libraries will participate in the inaugural nationwide Winter Reading Challenge. We challenge our patrons to read at least 10 hours during the month and keep track of their reading on our Beanstack site at http://moglibraries.beanstack.org. Over 100 libraries and schools across the nation will encourage their communities to read a target number of minutes and books. If we reach the nationwide goal, “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban will donate $35,000 to the organization “First Book,” which provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to children in need.
Kate Moore is a local art photographer. She began taking pictures as a teen and the art form has become her passion. Her show is composed of nature photos, landscapes and macro photography. Drop by the Brunswick-Glynn County Library during the month of January to enjoy her view of the world.
Both full time and part time residents are invited to join the library’s book discussion groups. The selections for this group are a mix of fiction and nonfiction, selected with the male reader in mind. January’s title is A Legacy of Spies by John le Carre.
Perk up your Mondays with a game of Scrabble. Can’t make it every week? That is OK; join us when you are able. Men and women are welcome. Scrabble Club is also available on Friday mornings at 10:30am.
This month’s library matinee is also part the library’s Big Read movie series, “Shakespeare Retold”. The featured movie is Kiss Me Kate, a 1953 adaptation of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew.
