|The following is the fifth part in a five part series on services offered at the library that most people might not think about when they think of their local library (or librarian!)|
The final part in this series focuses on the best "thing" you can find at the library: a sense of Community. Fortunately, Community can be something kept, not simply borrowed.
|The King County Library System's "Many Voices, One Land" programs exemplify the emphasis on Community. Redmond is a wonderfully diverse city with many opportunities to explore the world in our very own backyard. In addition to posting relevant book lists on a regular basis, live performances celebrate our culturally interesting Community.|
An upcoming March 15th program entitled "The Barber's Wife" is an "adaptation of a familiar folktale from India [that] tells the amusing story of Sandhar, who receives a small plot of land from the prince of the village and the way his clever wife tricks a couple of thieves."
Other library branches will host topics as diverse as Cuban folk music, traditional African dance and songs from a family that lives in a yurt.
