Kids of all ages are encouraged to attend this special program. It is a great way for parents (expecially Dads and Granddads) to spend some time with kids doing something fun and creative. A prize draw will be held at each program. Please register ahead of time so staff know how many kids to expect. All kids should have an adult helper to assist and supervise. Please note that staff are not able to supervise children closely during this program as the library is also open to the general public.
All LEGO building materials are provided by the library - so please leave your own at home!
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: State of Wonder by Anne Patchett
The current titles may be available at the branch. Please speak with staff.
