Page Turners Book Club is for children in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. It is currently on hiatus.
In May, we met for the special “Shared Stories, Open Minds” program. We read “And Tango Makes Three,” discussed all kinds of families, and then made our own penguins! We ate penguin crackers and each got a FREE book. The next Page Turners Book Club will be on Monday, June 8 at 4:30 pm. Please bring your favorite book and be prepared to tell us why you LOVE it! Stop by the library sometime after May 14th to pick up the next Page Turners book.
