Join us!  This is a new date and time for November and December.  The Book Club will meet on the first Thursday of the month, from 5:30 to 7:30 in the evening, in the meeting room at the Library. These books were chosen at the group’s meeting in August 2016. For more information, call Tania Hajjar at 970/249-9656 (ext. 3).

The selection for December 2017 is Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson.

What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There’s no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson.

But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in tasty chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.

While you wait for your morning coffee to brew, for the bus, the train, or a plane to arrive, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will reveal just what you need to be fluent and ready for the next cosmic headlines: from the Big Bang to black holes, from quarks to quantum mechanics, and from the search for planets to the search for life in the universe. – amazon.com
