Tell us what you loved, what you hated, would you recommend it and even share if you read your other book selection from your box or another favorite you've read around that month's theme.  This month all of our book chat discussions have also had movies made out of the books.  Did you see the movie?

Book C.H.A.T. Box Pick-Up
11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Join one of our January Book C.H.A.T.s

These are not ordinary book chats.  When you register for a Book C.H.A.T. you will be able to pick up a box of items that is full of Crafts, Handfuls of munchies, Art, and Texts around a theme.  What does this mean?

In your box you will have a copy of the book discussion book, crafts that go along with the book, handfuls of candy or snacks that go along with the book,  art/decor that go along with the book and another book hand-selected for you around that month's theme. You get to KEEP everything (even the books!).

Our December/January Book C.H.A.T. Box theme is Winter. We then ask that you read the book discussion book (all that sign up will have 1 book that is the same) and join us via Zoom in January for a short discussion about the book. Tell us what you loved, what you hated, would you recommend it and even share if you read your other book selection from your box or another favorite you've read around that month's theme.  This month all of our book chat discussions have also had movies made out of the books.  Did you see the movie?

Please only register for a Book C.H.A.T. Box if you plan to attend the zoom interactive portion of this program (the book discussion).

Pick-up your Book C.H.A.T. Box for December/January during the weeks December 7-11 and December 14-18 during our open hours of 11am-4pm at the children's room.  Register for your box by clicking the appropriate age group link below.
