This summer's theme of "Funny Business" brought a smile to the faces of many kids through July and August! We had 10 kids complete their reading records to receive medals and certificates of achievement. Many kids received books and other prizes during the contests and weekly bookdraws including; Kaitlyn, Avery, Amber, Lewis, Max, Morgan, and Chantelle - to name only a few! Thank you to all of the kids who made this year's program a wonderful sucess!
Join us at the library for discussion of the title(s) listed below. This is an open group and we are always happy to see new members at our meetings. We generally do not engage in "lofty" discussions about the books- but instead explore some of the interesting ideas or themes inside the stories...our main goal is to try reading a bit out of our own comfort zones and maybe come across some books we might never have thought to read! For more information about the group or if you would be interested in joining us please contact Diana at the Falkland branch.
Currently Reading: Angelology by Danielle Trussoni.
The current title may be available at the branch. Please speak with staff.
