Community Gardening
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Whitby-Ajax Garden Project provides a place for all people to come together to grow organic vegetables, herbs, fruit, flowers and form new friendships. The garden was established in 2001 as a place where individuals and organizations could work together raising small fruit and vegetables for distribution to those in need. The garden project continues to expand and now includes the garden proper, sitting area, children’s space, flower beds, and outdoor seminar area.  Mary Drummond, the Garden Coordinator, will be at the library to talk about the history and evolution of the garden project and explaining how you can either volunteer to help with the main garden or apply to set up your own small plot.

Note: This is an information session only, not a tour of the garden.

Non-Fiction Book Club
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Come and join us for our Non-Fiction Book Club! This month's selection is "Lakeland: Journeys into the Soul of Canada" by Allan Casey.

More than just a place, Lakeland is a state of mind in this ode to Canada's abundant freshwater systems. The story begins at Emma Lake, Saskatchewan, site of writer Allan Casey's family cabin, built by his parents in 1960 for $2,500. From there, we embark on a journey through ten of Canada's seldom-celebrated but beautiful and increasingly fragile lakes in this extraordinary piece of writing celebrating one of Canada's iconic natural features. Casey, an award-winning journalist, takes us on a journey of these lakes, from log cabins to lakeside mansions, from the semi-desert of Okanagan Lake to the ponds of western Newfoundland, and over the language barrier to Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec. Across the sprawling, hard-to-define land called Canada, the language of lakes is spoken. Lakeland, suggests Casey, is a place, a state of mind, and perhaps even a new synonym for Canada. Despite problems of overdevelopment, these lakes remain the heartland of this country, and the place where our relationship with wilderness itself begins.

Registration is required. To register click on the green button below, call 905 668-6531 x.2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Non-Fiction Book Club
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Come and join us for our Non-Fiction Book Club! This month's selection is "The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayl, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo" by Tom Reiss.

Here is the remarkable true story of the real Count of Monte Cristo – a stunning feat of historical sleuthing that brings to life the forgotten hero who inspired such classics as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. The real-life protagonist of The Black Count, General Alex Dumas, is a man almost unknown today yet with a story that is strikingly familiar, because his son, the novelist Alexandre Dumas, used it to create some of the best loved heroes of literature. Yet, hidden behind these swashbuckling adventures was an even more incredible secret: the real hero was the son of a black slave -- who rose higher in the white world than any man of his race would before our own time.

The Black Count is simultaneously a riveting adventure story, a lushly textured evocation of 18th-century France, and a window into the modern world’s first multi-racial society. But it is also a heartbreaking story of the enduring bonds of love between a father and son. 

Registration is required.  To register click on the green button below, call 905 668-6531 x.2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Non-Fiction Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Come and join us for our Non-Fiction Book Club! This month's selection is Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman.

With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money ten years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to fifteen months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear 'down the rabbit hole' of the American penal system. From her first strip search to her final release, Kerman learns to navigate this strange world with its strictly enforced codes of behavior and arbitrary rules, where the uneasy relationship between prisoner and jailer is constantly and unpredictably recalibrated. She meets women from all walks of life, who surprise her with small tokens of generosity, hard words of wisdom, and simple acts of acceptance. Heartbreaking, hilarious, and at times enraging, Orange Is the New Black offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison, why it is we lock so many away, and what happens to them when they're there.

Registration is required.  To register click on the green button below, call 905 668-6531 x.2020 or email askreference@whitbylibrary.on.ca.

Come and join us for our Non-Fiction Book Club! This month's selection is The Wolf by Richard Guilliatt and Peter Hohnen.

On November 30, 1916, an apparently ordinary freighter left harbor in Kiel, Germany, and would not touch land again for another fifteen months. It was the beginning of an astounding 64,000-mile voyage that was to take the ship around the world, leaving a trail of destruction and devastation in her wake. For this was no ordinary freighter--this was the Wolf, a disguised German warship. In this gripping account of an audacious and lethal World War I expedition, Richard Guilliatt and Peter Hohnen depict the Wolf 's assignment: to terrorize distant ports of the British Empire by laying minefields and sinking freighters, thus hastening Germany's goal of starving her enemy into submission. Yet to maintain secrecy, she could never pull into port or use her radio, and to comply with the rules of sea warfare, her captain fastidiously tried to avoid killing civilians aboard the merchant ships he attacked, taking their crews and passengers prisoner before sinking the vessels. The Wolf thus became a huge floating prison, with more than 400 captives, including a number of women and children, from twenty-five different nations.
