Library News and Updates
Teen Book Club!
We are starting up a teen book club, run by teens for teens. Any teen in 6th through 12th grades is welcome to attend.
Join us for the first meeting, Wednesday, November 15 at 3:00p.m. Most meetings will probably run about 1 hour. At this meeting, you will get to know each other and your reading preferences, vote on the first book, and schedule the next meeting.
We will be deciding at the meeting how often and when to schedule book club meetings, so hopefully we can work around all of your busy schedules!

Children under 8 must be accompanied by a caregiver.

1000 Books Before Kindergarten
1000 books before kindergarten encourages families to read with their children and develops a love of reading while children are young! Reading with our children helps improve imagination, creativity, vocabulary and promotes family time! Children birth-5 can participate.
Sign up at the library, log each book read, and for each 100 milestone children get to pick out a prize and put their picture on the achievement wall & in the newspaper!
Join Book Club!
Book Club meets monthly on Friday afternoons. Book Club is for adults 18 and older. To join, call the library to request a copy of our current book, and attend our next meeting!
Each month, we prepare a list of books that fit a specific genre or theme and book club members vote on which book to read.
Next Meeting: December 8 at 4:15p.m.
We asked our staff and library board members about the best books they read in the last few years, and compiled a list of recommendations for you. Click the orange button to view the list.
