Director’s Blog: November 2022

On Saturday, Nov. 5, I was honored to introduce our Tacoma Reads author event with Julia Alvarez in conversation with Mayor Woodards. Thank you to everyone who read Julia's book Afterlife, attended the reading, or participated in a Tacoma Reads program in 2022! Stay tuned for an announcement in spring of 2023 of the next Tacoma Reads selections.

If you enjoyed Tacoma Reads, I encourage you to join one of the Tacoma Public Library-sponsored book clubs that meet year-round. Insatiable readers, I hope you'll consider signing up for the Extreme Reader Challenge in 2023 to diversify your reading selections and to meet other local book lovers. To complete the challenge, you'll read 50 books from 55 categories in 50 weeks. Sign-ups for 2023 open in January.

There is so much to look forward to at Tacoma Public Library, and many ways to get involved. Thank you for your ongoing support!

Kate Larsen, Library Director
