Lego Club will be on 7/14 at 3:30pm. We bring the bricks, you bring the builders! All you have to do is show up and build. Each kid that completes a Lego creation will get to name it and put it on display until the next Lego Club. If we have room, kids can put up multiple creations!

July Reads for August Book Clubs
Our Book Club for Kids will meet to chat about Redwall on 7/6 at 4pm. Our next book is The Strangers by Margaret Pererson Haddix. We will meet to chat about it on 8/3 at 4pm. Here is a bit more about The Strangers from the publisher.
"The Greystone kids thought they knew. Chess has always been the protector over his younger siblings, Emma loves math, and Finn does what Finn does best—acting silly and being adored. They’ve been a happy family, just the three of them and their mom.
But everything changes when reports of three kidnapped children reach the Greystone kids, and they’re shocked by the startling similarities between themselves and these complete strangers. The other kids share their same first and middle names. They’re the same ages. They even have identical birthdays. Who, exactly, are these strangers?
Before Chess, Emma, and Finn can question their mom about it, she takes off on a sudden work trip and leaves them in the care of Ms. Morales and her daughter, Natalie. But puzzling clues left behind lead to complex codes, hidden rooms, and a dangerous secret that will turn their world upside down."
Our Middle School Book Club will meet to talk about The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill on 6/8 at 3:30pm. Our next book is Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky by Kwame Mbalia. We will chat about this upcoming OBOB book on 8/10 at 3:30pm. Here is a little more about the book from the publisher.
"Seventh-grader Tristan Strong feels anything but strong ever since he failed to save his best friend when they were in a bus accident together. All he has left of Eddie is the journal his friend wrote stories in. Tristan is dreading the month he's going to spend on his grandparents' farm in Alabama, where he's being sent to heal from the tragedy.
But on his first night there, a sticky creature shows up in his bedroom and steals Eddie's notebook. Tristan chases after it--is that a doll?--and a tug-of-war ensues between them underneath a Bottle Tree. In a last attempt to wrestle the journal out of the creature's hands, Tristan punches the tree, accidentally ripping open a chasm into the MidPass, a volatile place with a burning sea, haunted bone ships, and iron monsters that are hunting the inhabitants of this world.
Tristan finds himself in the middle of a battle that has left black American folk heroes John Henry and Brer Rabbit exhausted. In order to get back home, Tristan and these new allies will need to entice the god Anansi, the Weaver, to come out of hiding and seal the hole in the sky. But bartering with the trickster Anansi always comes at a price."
We are targeting June for a return to in-person Storytimes. For May, all of our Storytimes will continue to be hosted virtually via Zoom.
