A complex sea-monster of a book, Moby-Dick by Herman Melville is a rewarding literary experience.
This American classic is the library’s second selection for its Big Books
series of guided discussions around daunting but worthy works. Leading the
class will be Stephen Hall, whose deep background in philosophy and theology
has informed his 25 years as an instructor in the Basic Program at the Graham
School for Continuing Studies at the University of Chicago. Registration is
required and space is limited.
Glencoe residents have priority if the class fills up. Registration begins September 1. Sponsored by the Friends
of the Glencoe Public Library.
Parenting is a gift, a profoundly challenging gift in our
world of choices at every turn. So many of us wonder how best to parent our
values and how to raise grateful, socially responsible children. Join us for
community conversations that will provide developmentally appropriate, practical
ideas for parents to increase the awe, appreciation and awareness of our
children and our families. These nondenominational conversations will be
facilitated by Reverend Daphne Cody (St. Elisabeth’s Episcopal Church), Rabbi
Lisa Greene (North Shore Congregation Israel), and Kathy Livingston, LCSW
(Family Service of Glencoe). ANOTHER "PARENTING WITH CONVICTION" DISCUSSION, THIS ONE FOCUSING ON RAISING SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS CHILDREN, WILL BE OFFERED ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, AT 7:00 P.M.
The knitters are back! Dig out your needles and yarn and join us by the fireplace in the Johnson Room for a morning of knitting. Rekindle old abilities, learn new techniques, or just bring your current project to work on. Teresa Grosch, an experienced knitter, will be on hand to help. Donated yarn courtesy of Three Bags Full of Northbrook will be available, but you'll need to bring your own needles. SPECIAL FOR THIS DATE: An expert knitter from Three Bags Full will bring sample projects--produced by store staff and its customers--for inspection and discussion!
