Virtual – Teen Advisory Board (TAB)

Join the library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB)! What exactly is the Teen Advisory Board, you ask? A chance to connect and a chance to influence decision-making in the library!

TAB members will lead a redesign of the teen space in the library (in the not-too-distant future), plan and help run programming for teens (like trivia and game nights), and advise library staff on decisions that impact teens in the library and the community. TAB is a good way to accumulate volunteer hours, beef up your resume, and meet other bookish teens. Attendance at all meetings is not mandatory – come to as many as you can.

If you’re interested, email Teen Services Librarian Amy D. at adickinson@montroselibrary.org. We hope to see you soon!

Virtual Library Book Club Meeting

**Join us at 9 am on Zoom! To request the zoom link and password, email lmclean@montroselibrary.org.**

The Book Club will meet on the first Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m.. These books were chosen at the group’s meeting in August 2018. For more information, call at 970/249-9656 (ext. 3).

The selection for October 2020 is How to Hide an Empire by Daniel Immerwahr, discussion led by Brenda Joyce.

We are familiar with maps that outline all fifty states. And we are also familiar with the idea that the United States is an “empire,” exercising power around the world. But what about the actual
territories–the islands, atolls, and archipelagos–this country has governed and inhabited? In “How to Hide an Empire,” Daniel Immerwahr tells the fascinating story of the United States outside the United States. In crackling, fast-paced prose, he reveals forgotten episodes that cast American history in a new light. We travel to the Guano Islands, where prospectors collected one of the nineteenth century’s most valuable commodities, and the Philippines, site of the most destructive event on U.S. soil. In Puerto Rico, Immerwahr shows how U.S. doctors conducted grisly experiments they would never have conducted on the mainland and charts the emergence of independence fighters who would shoot up the U.S. Congress. In the years after World War II, Immerwahr notes, the United States moved away from colonialism. Instead, it put innovations in electronics, transportation, and culture to use, devising a new sort of influence that did not require the control of space. Rich with absorbing vignettes, full of surprises, and driven by an original conception of what empire and globalization mean today, How to Hide an Empire is a major and compulsively readable work of history. –Amazon.com
