Kids can enter their name each time they visit the library for their chance to win a special 3D book:Jim Curious: A voyage to the heart of the sea by Matthias Picard. This book is suitable for kids of all ages. Stop by the branch today to take a peek at this fun book and enter the draw! The draw will be made on December 16th.
Join us at 1pm on Saturday December 6th for some great Christmas and Winter themed books and a special craft. As always kids should arrived dressed in play clothing as things could get a bit messy. Children ages 5-12 are invited to attend this fun program. Registration for this program is not required, but parents are asked to stay and help out younger kids with their craft project. Please call or stop by the branch for more information about this or any other happenings at the branch.
Join us to discuss our latest book as well as help us determine what changes we can make to this book club to increase membership. Should we be reading different books? Meeting on a different day or at a different time? Perhaps this group should only meet during a certain part of the year? We welcome your input! And if you haven't read our current title...don't worry, we are an easy going bunch and we will still share our cookies!
Currently Reading: The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.

Sadly I was the only person able to attend the book club meeting this time (due to changes in the meeting date, snow, and sickness!) I can't speak for the others who read this title; but I will share my thoughts...
It starts off very slowly but if you can hang on until about the half-way point it does start to pick up. I do think that there was a lot of extra information and description that could have been omitted or at least condensed without changing the main focus of the story. If you liked Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, or any story featuring hidden societies/communities and their struggles to remain anonymous and yet get their "work" done- I would recommend this. It is by no means a fast-paced adventure story, but once you do make it to that half-way point you will most likely be compelled to finish... (though some might be compelled to finish it simply so they never, ever, have to read it again.) I did feel it was a bit too much of a "thinker" type of novel to read for our group- but at least we tried something a bit different and I didn't hear that anyone's head exploded from reading it. My vote- skip this title and read something a bit less intense!
