This is a great time to publicly thank the many Friends groups in our community.

We are very fortunate to have the wonderful Burien Library Guild and equally fabulous White Center Library Guild working for our libraries!

Guild members contribute time and expertise to bring programs and services to our libraries that we would not otherwise have.

So please stand up, clap your ink-stained hands and shout out with me: THANK YOU!!!

BULLET POINT BOOK REVIEW:
‘People of the Book’ by Geraldine Brooks

  • Rare book expert Hannah Heath discovers tell tale artifacts in the binding of a beautifully illuminated ancient Hebrew text she has been hired to restore.
  • From wine stains to insect wings Hannah traces the history of the times and people who cared for and in some cases protected the book from destruction.
  • The history of the book goes all the way back to 1480 where Hannah finally discovers the original reason that this particular text was so beautifully illustrated.
  • Hannah’s fascinating detective work ultimately plunges her into the dangerous world of art forgers and political fanatics.
  • Highly Recommended!

ALL KING COUNTY LIBRARIES WILL BE CLOSED TUESDAY NOVEMBER 11TH FOR VETERANS DAY.

AND DON’T FORGET TO VOTE TUESDAY NOV. 4TH!

Marilee A. Cogswell is the Manager of the Burien Library.
