Mother Love

Sherman Alexie is one of my favorite authors--one of those authors you associate with a pivotal time in your life. My first introduction to him was many years ago when I was living far away from the Pacific Northwest and feeling completely lost. A dear friend wrote me a letter and included a photocopy of a story she had just read in The New Yorker. The story was called "Indian Country" and it was the best thing I had read in a long time.

Being a good neighbor

One thing I love to do as a librarian is put up book displays. This month, as I gathered books on the theme of "Be a Good Neighbor," I found titles that really energized me and put me in a good mood. After all, the Samaritan spirit fills you with enthusiasm, goodwill, compassion and inspiration.

You have the ability to change the world. Whether your world is your city, your neighborhood, your circle of friends, your family, or within yourself, you can change it! All you have to do is choose to say yes to whatever is calling you.

Make a Difference in Local Transportation

During our Community Conversations, you told us that you care – a lot! – about transportation in Kitsap County. But it can be hard to know how to make a difference or have your voice heard. The Library can help you there! We’re always happy to help you find information about ways to make an impact on your community.

This month, Kitsap Transit is seeking your input to help develop their plans for the future. Until June 5th, you have several ways to weigh in with your opinions and ideas.

Living History: John Muir in the Pacific Northwest

Founder of the Sierra Club, the naturalist John Muir is also known for his essays and poetry in addition to his nature activism. He advocated for nature conservancy, specifically the preservation of forests in the American west. During his lifetime, he published six books and four more were published posthumously as well as several collections of essays. When he wasn't writing, he was working to establish the Yosemite National Park and preserve other wilderness areas.
