Attention, Book Lovers! The Dublin Library is introducing a new informal group for adult bibliophiles like you. We’re calling it Readers’ Round Table.  Each month, participants will share a bit about a book they’ve read, and fill up their “to-be-read” list with recommendations by peers. We will meet every third Tuesday of the month at 2 p.m., beginning September 19, 2017.

A short list of themed books will be provided each month for inspiration, but you can talk about any great book you’ve just read. Briefly describe what your chosen book is about and why people might enjoy it. Remember, don’t give away the ending!

Anyone interested in an informal, fun, and friendly space to express their love of books should attend. The first meeting’s theme is Reader’s Choice: any book in any genre that you’ve enjoyed. Come share your latest book crush with us. For more information, call 925-803-7252.

How much do you know about the nature just beyond your back yard?

Join us for a talk by the East Bay Regional Park District
this Thursday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m.!

There are over 654 acres in the Dublin Hills Regional Park just waiting to be explored. A Park District naturalist will share her tips about scenic walking trails, where to spot the local wildlife, and the free and low-cost activities happening at the various parks throughout the year.

You will also learn how you can become a park docent. If you enjoy working with children and teaching others about natural and cultural history then being a docent is perfect for you. The East Bay Regional Park District is looking for assistance with their school programs at Del Valle and Shadow Cliffs, and special events at Sunol.  You can find more information on being a docent and the upcoming Sunol/Del Valle docent trainings on the Parks website.
