January Classics Book Club-Dr. Zhivago

Join us January 28th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

First published in Italy in 1957 amid international controversy, Doctor Zhivago is the story of the life and loves of a poet/physician during the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Taking his family from Moscow to what he hopes will be shelter in the Ural Mountains, Zhivago finds himself instead embroiled in the battle between the Whites and the Reds. Set against this backdrop of cruelty and strife is Zhivago’s love for the tender and beautiful Lara, the very embodiment of the pain and chaos of those cataclysmic times.

Ask at the desk or email baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve a copy of this classic novel. Classics Book Club will not be meeting in December, but be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming discussions:
2/25/20–Fences by August Wilson

Kids’ Coding Club

Kids aged 6-10 are invited to create, tinker, and play the second Saturday of the month at 2:00 p.m.  Each month we’ll explore a new topic and activity to get a better understanding of coding and how it works!

1/11: Patterns: Spotting patterns makes coding easier.  We’ll use Botley the Coding Robot to explore how patterns can be used to simplify complex programs.

2/8: Design Thinking: Good programs aren’t built overnight.  They require many stages of testing and debugging.  We’ll use design thinking while we build with Cubelets.

3/14: Loops: Programmers use loops to create conditions for their robots.  We’ll use color codes and Ozobots to experiment with if/thens.

Space is limited.  Please call Bayne Library to register!
