    Category: Adults Virtual Books 'n Bites: “State of Wonder” by Ann Patchett

    September 13, 2023

    The library's book club meets each month for a fun and lively virtual book club experience!

    We meet on the second Wednesday of the month via Zoom.

    Email Sandy at for an invitation to the monthly Books ‘n’ Bites.

    Join us! this month when we will discuss the book:

    In a narrative replete with poison arrows, devouring snakes, scientific miracles, and spiritual transformations, State of Wonder presents a world of stunning surprise and danger, rich in emotional resonance and moral complexity.
    As Dr. Marina Singh embarks upon an uncertain odyssey into the insect-infested Amazon, she’s forced to surrender herself to the lush but forbidding world that awaits within the jungle. Charged with finding her former mentor Dr. Annick Swenson, a researcher who has disappeared while working on a valuable new drug, she will have to confront her own memories of tragedy and sacrifice as she journeys into the unforgiving heart of darkness.
    Stirring and luminous, State of Wonder is a world unto itself, where unlikely beauty stands beside unimaginable loss beneath the rain forest’s jeweled canopy. Patchett delivers a gripping adventure story and a profound look at the difficult choices we make in the name of discovery and love.“State of Wonder” by Ann Patchett

  • The Great Annular Eclipse of 2023 with photographer and naturalist Rick Spitzer

    Category: Adults The Great Annular Eclipse of 2023 with photographer and naturalist Rick Spitzer

    September 27, 2023

    Join photographer and naturalist Rick Spitzer and learn about the Great American Annular Eclipse of 2023.

    This eclipse will cross the Western United States on Saturday, October 14th.

    Seven states are on the path. The maximum eclipse will pass over the Four Corners of Colorado. Eagle County will view an 80% eclipse at 10:34 AM.

    An Annular Solar Eclipse is not the same as a Total Eclipse. The moon travels in an elliptical orbit. When the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit, a Total Eclipse may occur, and the entire sun is covered. When the moon is farther from Earth in its orbit, an Annular Eclipse may occur, and the entire sun is not covered.
