Come to the musical kick-off to the Adult Summer Reading Game and “Dublin Reads – One City, One Book” on Thursday, June 25th, at 2:00 PM in the Dublin Library with music from the Stoney Ridge Bluegrass Band!

Copies of the Dublin Reads book for July 2015, The Soloist, by Steve Lopez, will be available at the Dublin Library on June 25th. The Soloist is the story of the friendship between Los Angeles Times reporter Steve Lopez and Nathaniel Ayers, a former Juilliard School student suffering from schizophrenia living on Los Angeles’ Skid Row. At times gripping, moving and inspiring, this is a story about commitment, artistic devotion, and the transformative power of music. Copies will also be available at the Dublin Heritage Museum, the Senior Center and Civic Center. This book is also available as an e-book on Overdrive database and as an audio book on CD.

Read and watch for our postings about the book on the Library’s Facebook page all during the month of July: www.facebook.com/DublinLibrary.

  • You may not be able to play all streaming videos (like those from Starz) on a Kindle Fire or Fire HD.
  •  Streaming video can consume a lot of data, so if you’re on a mobile plan with a data cap, we recommend using a Wi-Fi connection when streaming on your mobile device to avoid data overages.
  • If you are trying to access the database remotely, you will need an Alameda County Library card.

Do you enjoy reading books and sharing your reactions to the book with others? Then welcome to Dublin Library’s Second Thursday Book Discussion Group. This group of adult readers meets on the second Thursday of every month in the Dublin Library Program Room at 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM. Participants have read the same book and share their ideas during a moderated discussion.

The book for discussion on June 11th is “A Wedding in Haiti,” by Julia Alvarez. In this true account of a promise kept, Alvarez takes us on a journey into into the past and present regarding the history shared between her native Dominican Republic and the neighboring nation of Haiti.

If you wish to join the group, come to the Adult Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book to be discussed at the next meeting. The group size is limited to 10 people.
