We will discuss Barbara O'Connor's The Small Adventure of Popeye and Elvis. In this humorous tale, Popeye's boring life changes when Elvis and his wandering and eccentric family's motor home gets stuck in the mud. When they see Yoo-Hoo boxes floating in the river carrying mysterious notes, they set out on an adventure to discover who is behind this.

The Reading Buddies Book Club is a round-table discussion, where participants will discuss why they liked or didn’t like the book and how it compares to other books they have read.

There will be a trivia contest with prizes, and refreshments will be served. Online pre-registration is suggested.

For Grades 4 and 5. This program is drop-off. Online pre-registration is suggested.

This is a "test" program, new for Fall 2015. It is aimed at avid readers, and will be in a "book talk" format. The librarian will start out by highlighting 2 – 3 books that he has enjoyed, and participants will be asked to bring in their own titles (1 or 2 each) to share. Participants will be reminded that the goal is to get their friends to want to read the book, so they shouldn’t give away the ending!

Time will be set aside at the end of the program for "advisory," meaning the participants can offer their feedback as to what type of books they would like the library to have more of. They also could be offered a survey as to what types of programs they would like to see more of in the library. Refreshments will be served.

        There are 24 spaces available.
