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:
"Dude, There’s a Robot in My Cubicle!”
What is going
to happen to the idea of work? Work remains a central element of our
self-identity and our place in American society. The concept of paid
labor is also a pivotal component our economic system. Work has created our
individual and shared wealth, and has fostered the virtues we value for a great
labor is declining as a fraction of our economy, and technology is accelerating
that change. Robots are gradually absorbing today’s routine tasks, and
are taking on more every day. How will the economy work with increasingly few
jobs available? How will we, and our society, need to adjust?
Join us at the Salon on Friday June 24th at 1:30. We’ll be in the large
conference room on the main floor at BPL. Civil discourse is the norm. Click here for a reading that might stimulate your thinking on the June topic.
