Due to the rising COVID-19 cases in town, this program is cancelled today. We will be taking a two-week pause on in-person programs. We'll see you again Friday, December 11th. Stay safe and healthy.
Read the monthly book then join the discussion at the library. Bring your own tea, coffee, or water.
Face masks are encouraged for participation in programs, as we may not always be able to maintain physical distance.
For November's meeting, we will be discussing The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas. Place a hold or pick up a copy at the library.
"Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life." -
