Your Water Footprint with author Stephen Leahy
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

That morning cup of coffee required 140 liters (37 gallons) of water before it found its way to your table—water that was used to grow, process and ship the coffee beans. When we spend money on food, clothes, cellphones or even electricity, we are buying water— a shockingly large amount of water.

Join author Stephen Leahy and learn what Your Water Footprint reveals and how water is essential to our way of life in ways we never imagined.

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

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed.

Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State--and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

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

Green Your Home this Spring!

The safest prevention is to avoid purchasing them. Become aware of which harmful chemicals are common in household products, decrease health and safety risks in your home and learn about simple, safe alternatives made from products you probably already have on your shelves.

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

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is This Is Your Brain on Music by Daniel J. Levitin.

In this meeting of art and science, rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin explores the connection between music—its performances, its composition, how we listen to it, why we enjoy it—and the human brain. Drawing on the latest research and on musical examples ranging from Mozart, Ella Fizgerald, and U2 to Schoenberg, Metallica, and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" Levitin reveals:

  • how composers exploit the way our brains make sense of the world
  • why we emotionally attach to music we listen to as teenagers
  • why 10,000 hours of practice—not talent—makes virtuosos
  • how insidious jingles get stuck in our heads

Taking on prominent thinkers who argue that music is nothing more than an evolutionary accident, Levitin argues that music is fundamental to our species, perhaps even more so than language. This is Your Brain on Music is an ear-opening, mind-blowing investigation into an obsession at the centre of human nature.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

Building an Ageless Mind at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Dr. William Tippett is returning with his popular program.

The brain, our ability to think, and our self-concept are so very important to individual lives, and the desire to maintain robust cognitive function is the ultimate goal for anyone concerned about the aging mind. Lifestyle strategies to promote brain health are becoming more prevalent in our society, but understanding what really works and why and how we need to engage in certain activities, as well as what effects one can expect is still not clearly layout for the population.

Thus, Dr. Tippett will highlight in his presentation the best strategies for building an ageless mind, with evidence from current research. In addition in his presentation Dr. Tippett will also examine one of the most profound brain aging related illnesses of our time, Alzheimer's disease, and provide detailed information on how this disease affects the individual, and ways to protect against it, and to alter its course even if it's been diagnosed. Better brain health is possibly for all aging individuals and by following a few guidelines one can expect to see improvements or maintained ability as they age.

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

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is The Devil's Cinema by Steve Lillebuen.

On October 10, 2008, Johnny Altinger left his Edmonton home for a first date with a woman he had met online. He was never seen again. Two weeks earlier, aspiring filmmaker Mark Twitchell finished shooting his latest short film—a horror story about a serial killer who impersonates women on an online dating site to lure unsuspecting men to his suburban kill room. But was his script the blueprint for a real-life murder? And was the shocking document titled S.K. Confessions actually a diary detailing his dark transformation into a would-be serial killer? The Devil's Cinema is the powerfully gripping and definitive account of the notorious "Dexter Killer." Taking us deep into the extraordinary police investigation and the lives of everyone involved, Steve Lillebuen unveils new details drawn from extensive and exclusive interviews—including a year of contact with the killer himself—to craft a compulsively readable story of dangerous obsessions pushed to extremes.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.

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 at Central
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Non-Fiction Book Club. This month's selection is Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo.

In Behind the Beautiful Forevers, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Abdul, an enterprising teenager, sees "a fortune beyond counting" in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. With a little luck, her beautiful daughter, Annawadi's "most-everything girl," might become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then Abdul is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy turn brutal. With intelligence, humour, and deep insight into what connects people to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century's hidden worlds—and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.

All of our non-fiction book club selections are available in alternative formats (eg. audiobook). If you require an alternative format, please speak with the book club coordinator.
