Library & Book Clubs

The Next Meeting of the Book Club is Friday, May 17, 2019, at Noon, in the Arts & Crafts Room at the Clubhouse.

We will discuss Mark Sullivan’s “Beneath A Scarlet Sky.” The Lead person is Katherine Beebe.  Bring Brown Bag Lunch for Yourself.  We Supply Iced Tea and Iced Water.  

The Friday, June 19, 2019, meeting will be Biographies/Memoirs.  You may select any book and at the meeting, tell us one or two things about the book.  E.g., What impressed you/surprised you about the main character?  What did you like… or not like… about the book.  In the past, we have discussed Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Steven Jobs, and Frank Lloyd Wright.  There are many biographies/memoirs on authors, statesmen, politicians, entertainers, business owners, sports figures, Olympic winners, global adventurers, philanthropists, spiritual leaders, etc.

 

Our Fall Library work session will be on Tuesday, October 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30.

Clubhouse Fall Book Sale will begin on October 15, noon, and conclude October 25, noon.

There are approximately 600 hardbacks.  We shelve hardback books published since year 2002.  We have a shelf of New Releases, Years 2017-2019.  There is also a shelf of “New Additions” and “New Arrivals” recently donated by residents, but may not be years 2017-2019.

There are almost 250 “small size” paperbacks on revolving shelves and above the puzzles on wooden shelves.

Plus, there are 175 “oversized” paperbacks above the personal computers.  We shelve paperback books published since 2010.

There are about 180 Movie DVDs on the revolving shelves.

There are some 40 Audio Cassette Books located on the revolving shelves.

We have about 30 Puzzles...mostly 300 pieces and 500 pieces, and several 750 to 1000+ pieces.

We have a basket for donated 2019 Magazines.

We ask you to please use the Sign Out Binder located beneath the puzzles for Hardback books, Movie DVDs & Audios Cassettes, and New Releases.  No sign out needed for paperbacks.  Please return when you finish.

We are seeking donations of Large PRINT Size books which we mark using a green dot on book spine–we have only a few.  We are seeking donations of  “classic” books, books on genealogy & genealogy-research, and Texas history. 

Thank you for your donations.  Many books have been donated by residents over the past  year.

Books which are removed from our shelves due to limited spacing are sold at the Clubhouse Book Sales for a token amount.  Remaining unsold books and magazines have been donated to Something Special, the VA Hospital in Conroe, the Assistance League, and to Friends of the Montgomery County Library in Conroe.
