No Dogs Allowed (“Ready, Set, Dogs!” series) by Stephanie Calmenson & Joanna Cole

Kate and Lucie are best friends. Kate is neat and Lucie is messy, but both girls love dogs! Unfortunately, Kate and Lucie live in apartments where dogs are not allowed. Instead of real dogs, they have all sorts of dog items, yet nothing is quite the same as having a real dog. One day, the girls discover sparkly pink dog necklaces at the thrift store and try them on -- there is a pop and a whoosh and the girls are turned into dogs! Kate and Lucie won’t need their own pet dogs, because they’ll be having furry adventures of their own!

Join us for a fun evening of book-related discussion and activities. The library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Register at the information desk and pick up a copy of the book.

Meet Luis Carlos Montalván and Tuesday

 It’s a privilege to have former U.S. Army Captain and New York Times bestselling author Luis Carlos Montalván and Tuesday, his golden retriever service dog, visit the library.  What better way to honor Veterans Day than to hear Montalván’s personal story. Everyone is welcome.

Luis Carlos Montalván, a 17-year Army veteran, uses his recovery from post-traumatic stress disorder to help other veterans do the same. He will discuss his new book, Until Tuesday, and tell the story of how Tuesday helped him get control over his life. The book brings to light the mental health issues that many veterans find so difficult to talk about.

Until Tuesday and Tuesday Tucks Me In will be on sale for signing at the program.

Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein will be the exciting title that we'll read this time. Twelve-year-old Kyle gets to stay overnight in the new town library, designed by his hero (the famous gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello), with other students but finds that come morning he must work with friends to solve puzzles in order to escape. After a brief discussion, we'll be holding a library scavenger hunt, so sign up even if you've already read the book to play your way out of the Voorheesville Public Library!

The library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Register at the information desk and pick up a copy of the book.
