Beginning Reader Book Club
4:30 PM - 5:15 PM

Children just learning to read will work through a book together followed by a craft or activity.  Sometimes we'll all read aloud at the same time, sometimes we'll take turns.  Nobody ever has to read alone, if they don't want to! 

The book for this meeting will be Pete the Cat's Groovy Bake Sale by James Dean.

Extra copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Children's Desk starting one month before the group meets.  Pick one up ahead of time so your new reader can enjoy it and become familiar with it at their own pace.  

Registration is required as space is limited.

Handmade Books - Adult Craft Workshop
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

It's a new year, or a blank slate, as they say...the perfect time to create a unique, totally custom blank book to use however you see fit!  Make a hard or soft cover book that you can use as a desk calendar, a scrap book, a bullet journal, a diary, a sketchbook, or a pocket-sized grocery list keeper.  The details are up to you!  Feel free to bring fun papers, blank calendar print outs, or any other page inserts that will make your book useful to YOU.  If you don't have anything to bring, that's okay, too. 

We'll have everything you need, but come with a general idea of what function you'd like your book to serve. 

Space is limited.  Please register.

Fiction Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us to discuss Love and Other Consolation Prizes by Jamie Ford.


For twelve-year-old Ernest Young, a charity student at a boarding school, the chance to go to the World's Fair feels like a gift. But only once he's there, amid the exotic exhibits, fireworks, and Ferris wheels, does he discover that he is the one who is actually the prize. The half-Chinese orphan is astounded to learn he will be raffled off--a healthy boy "to a good home."... (Set) against a rich backdrop of post-Victorian vice, suffrage, and celebration, Love and Other Consolations is an enchanting tale about innocence and devotion--in a world where everything, and everyone, is for sale."  -Goodreads

New members are always welcome.  Copies are available at the library.

Mystery Book Club
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

For this Mystery Book Club book, we're reading and discussing "Ordinary Grace" by William Kent Krueger. 

"A respected mystery writer turns his attention to the biggest mystery of all: God. An award-winning author for his long-running Cork O’ Connor series, Krueger aims higher and hits harder with a standalone novel that shares much with his other work.... 'the awful grace of God,' as it manifests itself within the novel, would try the faith of the most devout believer. Yet, ultimately, the world of this novel is one of redemptive grace and mercy, as well as unidentified corpses and unexplainable tragedy. A novel that transforms narrator and reader alike.” Source: Kirkus Reviews (starred)

Mystery Book Club
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

For this Mystery Book Club book, we're reading and discussing "The Mysterious Affair at Styles" by Agatha Christie. This is the first title in the Hercule Poirot series.

"Agatha Christie’s debut novel was the first to feature Hercule Poirot, her famously eccentric Belgian detective. A refugee of the Great War, Poirot is settling in England near Styles Court, the country estate of his wealthy benefactress, the elderly Emily Inglethorp. When Emily is poisoned and the authorities are baffled, Poirot puts his prodigious sleuthing skills to work. Suspects are plentiful, including the victim’s much younger husband, her resentful stepsons, her longtime hired companion, a young family friend working as a nurse, and a London specialist on poisons who just happens to be visiting the nearby village. All of them have secrets they are desperate to keep, but none can outwit Poirot as he navigates the ingenious red herrings and plot twists that earned Agatha Christie her well-deserved reputation as the queen of mystery." -- Amazon.com

Eco Centric Book Club
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Join us to discuss No Impact Man by Colin Beavan.

A guilty liberal finally snaps, swears off plastic, goes organic, becomes a bicycle nut, turns off his power, and generally becomes a tree-hugging lunatic who tries to save the polar bears and the rest of the planet from environmental catastrophe while dragging his baby daughter and Prada-wearing, Four Seasons–loving wife along for the ride. And that’s just the beginning. What would it be like to try to live a no-impact lifestyle? Is it possible? Could it catch on? Is living this way more satisfying or less satisfying? Harder or easier? Is it worthwhile or senseless? Are we all doomed or can our culture reduce the barriers to sustainable living so it becomes as easy as falling off a log? These are the questions at the heart of this whole mad endeavor, via which Colin Beavan hopes to explain to the rest of us how we can realistically live a more “eco-effective” and by turns more content life in an age of inconvenient truths. -Goodreads
