Round Rock New Neighbors is a social organization of women welcoming women in the Round Rock area since 1978. Both "new" and "old" neighbors are welcome. For more information: rrnewneighbors.org [Barnes & Noble requires that RRNN's book club be open to the public, so you do not need to be an RRNN member to attend book club, and both men and women are welcome and do attend. ]

Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

The Friends of the Georgetown Public Library will host their 36th author event on Tuesday May 15, 2018 at 2 PM, in the Community Rooms of the library located at 402 W. 8th St.

The featured speaker will be local author, MJ Hegar, who published ‘Shoot Like a Girl’ in 2017.

In Shoot like A Girl, MJ takes the reader on a dramatic journey through her military career: an inspiring, humorous, and thrilling true story of a brave, high-spirited, and unforgettable woman who has spent much of her life ready to sacrifice everything for her country, her fellow man, and her sense of justice.

Tickets are $15 in advance. They’re available at the Second-Hand Prose bookstore on the second floor of the library, and online at www.folgeorgetown.org/calendar. Tickets are available at the door for $18. A dessert and beverage from the Red Poppy Coffee Company is included.

Correction: Round Rock Library's adult book club

Hi, everyone,

At the group's last meeting (Jude the Obscure) I announced that Blindness by Jose Saramago would be the next book club selection for Round Rock Public Library, the first Tuesday in April.


Blindness will indeed be the next title discussed, but the date is now the first Tuesday in May: May 4. The library will be closed March 29-April 4 in order to label books for a new checkout system. Access to materials would be limited in this interval, so now you'll have a more favorable opportunity to obtain and read the work of this Nobel prize-winning author.


Forthcoming adult book club sessions at Round Rock Public Library will feature these titles:

June 1: Lincoln's Melancholy by Joshua Shenk

July 6: The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

August 3: Japanland: A Year in Search of Wa by Karin Muller


Session times are 2:00 and 7:00: your choice.


Further details will appear on the library's home page: www.roundrocktexas.gov/library. We also invite you to visit the library's Readers Exchange blog. You can click on recent posts under "Library Blogs" on the library's home page.


Thanks!

Linda S.
