The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism." ~ from Amazon.

Join us as we read through all the U.S. presidents. We've reached the 18th president, Ulysses S. Grant. "Late in the administration of Andrew Johnson, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant quarreled with the President and aligned himself with the Radical Republicans. He was, as the symbol of Union victory during the Civil War, their logical candidate for President in 1868. When he was elected, the American people hoped for an end to turmoil. Grant provided neither vigor nor reform. Looking to Congress for direction, he seemed bewildered. One visitor to the White House noted "a puzzled pathos, as of a man with a problem before him of which he does not understand the terms." ~ whitehouse.govThere are no rules for this club. You may read any book or material you would like. We do offer several books at the front desk if you would like to choose one. All are welcome to our Presidents Book Club which meets every other month on the even months.

As long as anyone can remember there has always been a library on “the Hill.” The first library opened in the Idyllwild Inn in 1920. The first consignment of books was received from Riverside County Library that July. It has grown and moved several times from cabin to shared space with an art gallery to storefront.

Today, after several moves, a fire in 1945, a flood in 1978, several additions, remodels and expansions, the library has recently relocated to the Strawberry Creek Plaza on Village Center Dr.
 
It is a contemporary, bright, airy, 6400 square foot facility with a community room, a study room, inviting Children and Teen areas and a reading lounge with a fireplace. The staff continues the long tradition of friendly, helpful and knowledgeable service to the local community and offers a refreshed and up-to-date collection appealing to residents and vacationers alike.
