JKPL sets events, activities for January


The Joeten Kiyu Public Library will be hosting numerous events this month and is inviting the public to join in on these activities.

One such event includes a visiting South Korean professor of music and professional double bass player, Changwoo Sohn, who will be performing live at JKPL this Saturday at 10:30am in the Children’s Room.

“He will perform again on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 3:30pm in front of the Pacific Collection and will also be giving a concert at the Multi-Purpose Center at a later date,” said JKPL’s technical service librarian Rosalyn Ajoste.

One other activity that community members may enjoy is a class on “Resources for Children and Teenagers in American Sign Language” that will be held on Saturday, Jan. 17, at JKPL. The program will be presented by Patrick Lynch of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and will share video presentations. Those wanting to attend and reserve a seat on Jan. 17 may email Lynch at gplyn35@gmail.com.

JKPL will also be hosting a book signing and book selling by local dentist and author Nelson Krum on Jan. 21. Krum’s new book, Disaster at Bushehr, will be sold on Jan. 21 from 1pm to 3pm.

“He writes under the pen name Reginald Nelson. He will also give a short presentation about his inspiration for the novel, as well as the process of writing and publishing in general,” Ajoste said.

JKPL will also be resuming its adult basic education classes from Tuesday to Friday, from 4pm to 6pm.

Ajoste is also inviting community members to look at their book competition featuring entries from K-5 students on display at the library, including the Aeronautical Dolphins exhibit containing pictures, actual trophies, banners and an endorsement from President Barack Obama of the six member who won in 2013.
