Do you want to improve your reading? Do you know someone who needs to learn to read? Reading is essential not only as a leisure activity but for success in all aspects of everyday life. Key areas where reading is very important include finding employment, finding housing, and using social services. Should you sign a cell phone agreement or apartment lease if you can’t read it? How do you fill out a job application without being able to fully understand the job description and employee responsibilities? In Humboldt County, an estimated 13,800 adults are functionally illiterate; they read below a fifth-grade level. Another 23,000 people in our county read below an eighth-grade level. Since 1985, Humboldt Literacy Project has been matching adult learners with trained tutors. Stop by and find out how you can be a part of it!

Dogs to the Rescue is a puppet show about two dogs who train humans to reduce climate pollution, employing a number of endearing and not-so-endearing canine behaviors. In the process of saving the planet, they make it a healthier and happier place to live. With songs, laughter, and audience participation, the two dogs show how communities can halve their greenhouse gas emissions in a dog's life span. The show was created by Dr. Wendy Ring, a local physician and climate activist, with the help of local musicians. After a six-state tour last summer, the show is now visiting local libraries for a Humboldt County tour.

If you've read the Hunger Games series, or have watched the first two installments of the film version, you know this movie is filled with action, adventure, romantic tension, violence, and discussion about resistance to tyranny and artificial social control. Having reached the rebels in District 13, Katniss is on the road to revolution. Opposite sides want to use Katniss and Peeta against one another as symbols to sway the minds of the population. Jennifer Lawrence is impressive in the role of Katniss, and the film won multiple awards for her and other actors and for the musical score.

Trinidad: Looking Back from My Front Porch, is the title of John Meyers' new book. He says: Trinidad has a storied past. Starting as the Yurok village of Tsurai perhaps as far back as the 1100's, through Spanish discovery in 1775, Trinidad has evolved with the times. Sit with me and let me tell you about our history as an important ocean harbor link with the fur traders of the northwest and the gold mining camps of Northern California. Logging and milling the giant redwoods started around here and we had our own whaling station, too. And let me tell you about the people who came here and grew Trinidad into the 14,719th largest city in the U.S.! This book also includes a handy Guide to Nautical Terms just because I wanted it to. Pull up a rocking chair and let’s look back as I tell you about Trinidad from my front porch.

In this fun, family-friendly 70's remake of the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy (played by Diana Ross) is meek 24-year-old teacher who's never been out of Harlem, until one day a snowy whirlwind catches Toto & his mistress and strands them both in Oz. She's about to meet Lena Horne as Glinda, Michael Jackson as Scarecrow, Nipsey Russell as the Tin Man, and Ted Ross as the Cowardly Lion (found hiding as one of the lions in front of the New York Public Library). The city is a magical, proto-steampunk version of New York, everybody sings and dances, and Richard Pryor is the Wiz. Who could resist?
