Patagonia Library is in the thick of winter programming, from the Arizona Humanities Road Scholar Series ” AZ Speaks,” to Music and Coloring evenings, to the Short Attention Span discussion group. 

In addition, we’ve added the Foreign Policy Association’s “Great Discussions 2020” for eight weeks on Wednesdays from 4-6 p.m., beginning February 12. The Great Discussions program is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. The topics this year include Climate Change and the Global Order, India and Pakistan, Red Sea Security, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking, and more. Sign up at the library to be part of the discussion and to get your reading material. 

If you’ve been wondering where the Little Free Pantry has gone, look no further! Donated by Steve Niichel and Nancy Coyote, the pantry used to be at the Eastern Arizona Food Bank location at the 7th Day Adventist Church. The pantry is now attached to the front of the library facing Duquesne Avenue. Stop by anytime, day or night, to replenish the shelves with non-perishable items or take something for yourself if you need it.

The library is currently looking for volunteers. Do you have a passion for helping people, working with computers, organizing, learning about your community, or being surrounded by literature and art? Then you might fit in perfectly with us! Contact Laura at 520-394-2010 for more information.

We’ve still got room for more teams at the Friends of the Library Trivia Fundraiser on Saturday, February 8 from 7-9 pm. Tickets are $25.
