WV Reads 150+ (Jan-Dec 2014)

READ 150 +

Join the Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library, the West Virginia Center for the Book, schools, and libraries across the state in West Virginia Reads 150+, a reading challenge for West Virginians of all ages and walks of life.

The year-long reading initiative encourages West Virginians to read 150 books or more during the course of 2014.  The books can be in any format (printed book, e-book, downloadable text, etc.) and from any source.  Books can be on any topic, fiction or non-fiction.

The Clarksburg-Harrison Public Library encourages our patrons to read 150+ books individually or by joining a team here at the library to read 150+ books collectively.  Teams, can have any number of members, choose a name, select a leader to keep track of the books read by team members.

If you are interested in forming a team, pick up a registration packet at the front desk, or call Julia at 304-627-2236.

Lunchtime Book Discussion (December 18)

Thursday, December 18 ~ Noonindex

 This month’s book is  The Dog Stars by Peter Heller.

Hig somehow survived the flu pandemic that killed everyone he knows. Now his wife is gone, his friends are dead, and he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, Jasper, and a mercurial, gun-toting misanthrope named Bangley.

But when a random transmission beams through the radio of his 1956 Cessna, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life exists outside their tightly controlled perimeter. Risking everything, he flies past his point of no return and follows its static-broken trail, only to find something that is both better and worse than anything he could ever hope for.

For a copy, please stop at the Circulation Desk or feel free to read and bring your own copy.

This group meets in the Conference Room.

Everyone is welcome, so come and join the discussion!
