• Building Bridges w Books

    Join Prince George resident and small business owner, Kim Eley, who will facilitate our first chamber book club.  We will meet quarterly at mid-day, virtually at first and then in person in our local restaurants. We envision an informal mastermind group for professional development…so a book club whose purpose is to help all of us solve problems, remove barriers, and enjoy the new relationships that begin here. 

    If you are someone who enjoys connecting, brainstorming, listening, questioning, encouraging, and helping others, then you should mark your calendar right now so you will be a founding member of our bubbling pool of thoughts and ideas. We will choose books that are available in audio, e-book, and bound book with limited copies available at the library.

    At the first meeting of our new book club on January 13th, Building Bridges with Books, we discuss "The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters", by Priya Parker. Check out her TED Talk on the Art of Gathering here. Thank you to our special patrons for supporting Building Bridges with Books.
