The Bainbridge Public Library hosts a monthly discussion group. It
meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. The Salon is for men
and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and wish to learn from others in
civil dialogue. Topics will vary, but the mode will be general interest
subjects that impact the public. The Salon conversations will be energizing,
fun, and thought provoking. Next up is:
Our personal electronic devices and the internet can
saturate our spare moments. Many of us are experiencing profound changes in the
way we communicate, remember and socialize. One columnist wrote, "The last
remaining place I’m guaranteed to be alone with my thoughts is in the shower.” What
do you think? Are our lives still thoughtful, or just reactive? Are we
experiencing the end of reflection?”
Join this month’s BPL Salon discussion about using quiet
times of personal reflection as a way of processing outside influence and
sorting information. Is time for reflection important to you? How does it fit
into your life?
The BPL Salon meets on Friday, August 26, 2016
at 1:30PM. We’ll be in the large conference room on the main floor of BPL.
