A Great Place to Live

“You know the greatest danger facing us is ourselves, and irrational fear of the unknown. There is no such thing as the unknown. Only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood.”

Readers read for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they read for information, sometimes for pleasure or relaxation. Grandview Library is happy to assist on both accounts by hosting the “Fourth Thursday” book discussion group on (yes, you guessed it) the fourth Thursday of the month.

A good book discussion group brings together readers of different ages, education and backgrounds, and welcomes all points of view. Join today to add your voice to the mix.

RuralHeritage

The Grandview Library Collection documents the founding and development of the city of Grandview, located in Washington State’s fertile Yakima Valley. Local tradition tells us that on a bright Indian summer morning in 1905, two men on horseback, Elza Dean and F.L. Pitman, pulled their mounts to a halt halfway between then new towns of Sunnyside and Prosser. They saw Snipes Mountain rising in the foreground, and the snow-capped peaks of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier were outlined against the sky. “It’s a grand view!” Read more about our community in the Grandview Library Collection at Washington Rural Heritage a joint project of our library and the Washington State Library, Office of the Secretary of State.
