News & Events at West 7th Public Library

by Leslie Spring, Library Manager

As part of Read Brave Saint Paul, the West 7th Mystery Book Club will be departing from our usual theme in January and discussing Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond, who is a professor of Sociology at Princeton University. Evicted is the winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction and tells the true stories of families struggling to pay their rent. Desmond lived alongside these families in Milwaukee and documented their day-to-day experiences as well as the policies that impacted them. We have a limited number of giveaway copies of Evicted for those who plan to attend the meeting, which is January 24 at 6:30 p.m. If you are interested in a copy, please call West 7th Library.

West 7th is hosting the Douala Soul Collective on Wednesday, December 26 at 11:30am. Kids will be exposed to all genres of music from hip hop to soul, disco to funk Afro beats, Cumbia, jazz, etc. The event is geared for ages 7 to 11 but ages birth to 7 are also welcome. Families can also join us for our preschool Storytime that morning at 10:30 a.m.

West 7th and all St. Paul Public Libraries will be closed December 24-25. West 7th will also be closed December 31.
