New reading program to start at Carnegie Library

(Continued)

On Jan. 6 at 6:30 p.m. participants can take part in a books discussion on “Lady Catherine, The Earl, and the Real Downton Abbey.”

Another book discussion will be held on Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. No registration for the discussion is required.

The film the “The Secrets of Manor House” will be shown on Feb. 10 at 6:30 p.m.

The film will detail how the staff of the great Edwardian houses lived as well as the vital role that the homes played at the time. No registration is required.

Feb. 18 at 6:30 p.m. participants will get a glance of “Eltham Palace,” one of the most unusual homes in England.

The palace is uniquely divided, part Tudor and part art deco style and has been featured on several television shows and in many films. Refreshments will be served by Chef Jeff and registration is again required.

The final book discussion will be held on Feb. 24 at 6:30 p.m. Participants do not have to register.

The library has 10 copies of the book in circulation and due to the limited numbers, Chambon said he hopes when people are finished with the book, they will promptly return it so others can enjoy the reading. “We’ve had people come in already and have started reading,” he said

For more information or to sign up for the program, contact the Washington Carnegie Public Library at 254-4586 or email Chambon at rickc@washingtonpubliclibrary.org.
