Adult Coloring Night Feb 04, 2016 from 05:30 PM to 07:30 PM
All adults are invited to come to the Storm Lake Library and participate in our first ever Adult Coloring Night. Adult coloring has become wildly popular in the last few years. It's a great way to relax and reduce stress, using imagination and creativity! When done with others, coloring provides a great low-key opportunity to socialize. The Library will have coloring pages from some best-selling coloring books, and colored pencils available. Participants are welcome to bring their own books and coloring materials too. Refreshments will be served. Hope to see you at Adult Coloring Night!

CommUNITY Book Club--Brown Girl Dreaming Feb 25, 2016 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
CommUNITY Book Club will meet and discuss "Brown Girl Dreaming" by Jacqueline Woodson. Woodson tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child's soul as she searches for her place in the world. "Brown Girl Dreaming" is a 2014 National Book Award winner, and also received the Coretta Scott King Award, a Newbery Honor Award, the NAACP Image Award and the Sibert Honor Award.

In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line--between seductive passion and scandalous murder...Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she's seen it all--and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire--and a suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about--except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
