Hop out of the car and take a stroll through the land of Pho, fried noodles, Tacoma Tool Library, and Lincoln High!
It’s finally here! The Peace Little Free Library is up and open. Duggan, Brooks & Books are grateful to the Tacoma Community House, Rotary Literacy Committee, Brendan Nelson, and Aaron Skwirut for all their help and support in getting this library to its home in the Hilltop Neighborhood of Tacoma. Read all about it!
It’s August and summer is still singing its song. Join the chorus, hum a harmony, bang a gong, it’s up to you. We’re here with 25 Tacoma events to inspire you to get out and into the world while the sun is still strong. Street fairs, arts fests, homeowner education, history pubs, kid markets, literary shenanigans, volunteering and camping in the great outdoors - you can’t go wrong if you just go.
Kimberly Thomas, M. Ed. grew up in Tacoma, graduated from Lincoln High, and works for equity in education. She has a message for us! Brew a cup of coffee and sit down for a conversation with Kim. We’ll explore gentrification. We’ll talk about Kim’s mixed feelings about homeownership, and - on the lighter side- her favorite places in Tacoma.
It’s Tacoma events round-up time again and we’ve gathered 21 June events for your consideration. You can dance your heart out to ‘90s jams, walk for the Humane Society, sit-in on storytelling, salute the sun on Summer Solstice, join the Summer Reading Club, and shop so many fresh, local, outdoor markets! Take a look, Tacoma.
We’ve compiled another list of 20 Tacoma community events that we absolutely hope will inspire you to reach out into the city we share. You’ll find an abundance of markets, chances to taste wine and beer, cooking classes, kids crafts, outdoor excursions, Japanese American Remembrance events, a food forest, a fix-it fair, and more!
