Pine River Library will host a free four-part reading, viewing, and discussion series for adults called Pushing the Limits. The library is one of 110 rural public libraries nationwide receiving grants to host the series. Pushing the Limits brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists, and everyday people who thrive on exploring the natural world. The Pushing the Limits program will explore these ideas in discussions that will include feature video clips and recommended popular books. The overarching theme is one of real people, real stories, and real science. Group discussion events will be held once per month in conjunction with the BookMarks Book Club on the second Wednesday of the month from 2:00-3:30 p.m. on the following topics and books:
- January- NATURE: Apocalyptic Planet: Field Guide to the Future of the Earth, Craig Childs (The Fort Lewis Common Reading Experience book for the 2016/2017 school year
