TREATS, NOT TRICKS at the Circle Bookshop

Just in time to start thinking about holiday shopping, the Bookshop is having a blowout 2 for 1 sale on all $.50 books throughout the shop. That’s right, any book marked fifty cents is on two for one sale the entire month of October. Additionally, all cookbooks will remain on sale for half price for the next two weeks, and CDs/DVDs remain on sale as well. Stock is refreshed daily, so come check us out and check back often. All Bookshop proceeds benefit the Gulfport Library and the many wonderful free programs it offers to the community. Thanks for your support!

The Circle of Friends Bookshop is located inside the Gulfport Library at 5501 28th Avenue. S.

Flags from Around the World

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.
