Celebrate National Book Appreciation month. Paint pages from repurposed books. Appropriate for ages 6 to 12. No advanced registration is necessary.
The first book I read by the great Ann Patchett was “Bel Canto,” and I remember the experience so vividly. I was newly married and had just moved to St. Louis. I didn’t know a single person there and was spending my days feeling nervous and alone while he was away at class. After weeks of staying inside, I asked my husband to draw out a map to the nearest library; this was pre-GPS.
Looking to create a space for connection and inspiration in your life? Whether you want to transition your formerly in-person book club to an online platform, or to start a brand new group, we’ve got some tips and tricks to help you along! Join library staff to learn how to start and sustain an engaged virtual book club in this new year.
This program will be held online. A link will be emailed to registered attendees in advance.
I have never successfully completed a reading challenge. For years, I have fine-tooth combed the many challenges offered by various blogs and celebrities. I choose one that sparks my interest and set out in a grand attempt to fulfill the listed requirements. My gusto rarely lasts past March and I quickly become preoccupied with a new reading goal, professional reading responsibilities, or, in the case of last year, a global pandemic.
