The monthly Kidz Book Club will meet Tuesday from 5 to 6 p.m. Children from kindergarten through fifth grade are welcome to take part in the reading, games and snacks. The guest reader this month will be Deborah Nelson.
The Adult Book Club invites guests to come to its meeting Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The book this month was chosen by member, Sandra Moore and is written by one of her favorite authors, Tracy Chevalier.
“‘Remarkable Creatures’ is about the life of pioneer paleontologist Mary Anning,” Moore said. “I am attracted to her other books where she centers a fictional story around a real life event or object. Several of my book reading friends highly recommend this book.”
Story Time sessions are set for Mondays and Tuesdays for four more weeks.
