Book Club


The Book Club met again on December 19 at 1pm to discuss A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  Unbeknownst to us, it was also the 173th Anniversary to the day of the publishing of A Christmas Carol!

As we usually do in December, we plan on extra special treats and fancy tea. We for sure had the extra special treats!

Thanks for joining us for a festive gathering. We had a lot of fun comparing the book and the version of movies we love. We also learned we have new favorite illustrator in P.J. Lynch.

Denise was so involved in thinking of the end of the year that she didn't even think to order the next book club book.  OOPS!  But they are ordered now and all books are arriving in Large Print because it was the only way we could get this book for January.

Join us Monday, January 30th at 1pm to discuss this book.  We have a few discussion questions already printed out and we are looking forward to reading this very popular author's book.

 Teen Council is for anyone in 7-12 grade.

On December 19th, the teens got together to make coasters.  It was so fun to see their creativity come out.  Everyone really enjoyed this craft.  Miss Alicia put together her meat, cheese and crackers combo she does at Christmas for the teens and Miss Denise brought in her Christmas cookies.  Much hot cocoa was also consumed.  You can see all the photos on facebook.

Don't forget to about Football Pics!  If you are not on the email list, let us know.  Every week we send out that weeks football games, you choose what team you think will win and who ever gets the most answers correct gets a prize from the library. 


Toddler Time kicked off on September 20th.  We get together every Tuesday at 10:30am.  There is a time to color, then singing, story time, craft to make, snack to eat and play time with toys.  Every week we try to update facebook with that days Toddler Time.  Come on out and join in the fun!
We WILL have Toddler Time on December 20th but then we will be taking a short break until January 24th.
