Reading:  A Mystery of your choice!

Read a book of your choice, it just has to fit the current month's genre.  Then come to the meeting to tell us about it!  Maybe someone else read the same book as you or maybe someone will want to borrow it for themselves!  We'll have fun sharing our favorite books (or complaining about the ones we hate!) while eating snacks.

Pages to Popcorn

(Ages 13-17):  Read the book then come to the Library to hang out and watch the movie! We'll spend time chatting about them after the movie ends. CLICK Here to Register
