New Sale at the Circle of Friends Bookshop
This week the Circle of Friends Bookshop at the Gulfport Library is featuring a large selection of books by Clive Cussler. These thrilling novels feature Dirk Pitt, who finds himself in all kinds of trouble. Looking for something a bit less thrilling, check out the fiction and non-fiction shelves and don’t forget the ever popular sales carts. All proceeds from the Bookshop go to support programs and acquisitions for the Library. The Bookshop is located in the Gulfport Library at 5501 28th Avenue S. in Gulfport. Please call Marilyn Field at 727-321-4035 if you have any Bookshop questions.

If you happen to be at the Gulfport Public Library in the middle of the day during the week day. They’re laughing and talking, telling stories, playing games, and trading amazing life experiences. And if you pass by a little closer, you’ll note they are not doing all this in English. What’s going on?
It’s one of the library’s Conversation Clubs entitled “Lunch in a Foreign language,” aimed at providing a place for speakers of other languages to meet and talk, make new friends and practice their skills. These informal clubs require no registration and are open to any and all who wish to drop in. Italian is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays is Spanish and Fridays German. “Lunch in a foreign language” begins at 12:30 p.m. French is spoken on Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m.
The library support group, The Circle of Friends, is also exploring the idea of creating a similar club for those who wish to improve their English. Speakers of English as a second language will be invited to learn through casual chats in a comfortable setting. If you are interested in participating in this or any of the Conversation Clubs, please contact the library for more information.
