Events for Adults @ BCL Main

  1. Tertulia Literaria Mensual

    January 8, 2019, 6:00 PM - 7:45 PM @ World Languages Room, floor 2

    ¿Cuándo? El segundo martes de cada mes en la Biblioteca de la Ciudad de Beaverton de 6 de la tarde a 8 de la noche. Comenzamos el 11 de septiembre de 2018. ¿Qué haremos? Compartiremos nuestras ideas leyendo poesías, cuentos, novelas y otros libros juntos. Podremos recomendarnos libros de la biblioteca y hasta dejarles recomendaciones a nuestros vecinos. La biblioteca nos brindará el café, el lugar y los libros. Nosotros, la imaginación y la amistad. La literatura es parte de nuestra cultura. Desde 2014, la biblioteca ha enviado compradores a la Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara, Jalisco todos los años. ¡Aprovechemos este excelente recurso! Facilitada por Helen Eby, traductora de español certificada por la Asociación de Traductores de los Estados Unidos. (Beaverton City Library is hosting a discussion group of Spanish literature, led in Spanish, on the second Tuesday of the month starting in September 2018.)

  2. How to Pee, Poop & Barf in Space, with Dr. Jan Dabrowski

    January 8, 2019, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM @ Meeting Room A

    Learn how astronauts live in space! Astronauts can stay in space for months at a time, orbiting the Earth in the International Space Station. If you think of space travel as a very, very long road trip, you can imagine what a challenge it can be to take care of life's necessities in a zero-gravity environment. In this fascinating talk, Dr. Dabrowski will explore the deeper (and more human) meaning of "going" where no one has gone before.
