Book Club


Book Club will meet on Monday, December 18 at 1pm to discuss Santa is For Real.  This is a quick, easy to read book.  We all know how crazy December can be!  We are looking forward to a Christmas themed get together.

Book Club REALLY enjoyed Girl Waits With Gun.  There were a lot of requests for the rest of the books in the series.  Fun fast three book series if anyone is interested!

Our list is finalized for 2018 and we will have bookmarks at the December book club.  Anyone is welcome to join the book club at any time!  We meet at 1pm, usually bring a dish to pass of food to eat and usually stay on topic of the book but that doesn't always happen (haha!).  Ask if you need any more information!

Teens, don't forget to grab your football picks here at the library or let us know to email them to you!

On Monday, November 13 the teens put together their contribution to the Festival of Trees that will be happening at the library.  Their snowman tree turned out so cute!

Teens had a fun Christmas get together on December 11 where they made pot protectors and had candy sled races.  Check out the full facebook photo album.
