It's great to see that book clubs and reading groups are forming specifically around environmental issues. The newly formed Washington County Peak Oil Reading Group will meet Tuesday July 24th, 7:00pm at Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing.
The group will be discussing The Long Emergency: Surviving the Converging Catastrophes of the Twenty-First Century, by James Howard Kunstler.
Lake Oswego's Environmental Book Group meets on the 4th Tuesday of every month, from 7 - 8:30pm at the library, 706 Fourth Street Lake Oswego. Call Reference Librarian Jane Carr (503) 534-5665 for more information.
And in other library news, the Deschutes Public Library and the Central Oregon Environmental Center are working together to offer a four-session course on global warming prepared by the Northwest Earth Institute.
