Kids Book Club–Tuesdays with Stories–Grade 4-6th
October 16th @ 3:30-4:30pm

This is an exciting new opportunity for kids in grades 4-6th who like to read good books and then have an opportunity to share their impressions and ideas about these books. We may also play some games, create some art work or have a guest or two. And, of course, there will be food! We will meet the third Tuesday of each month for our discussions and to pick up our new read. For our first get together, we will discuss your reactions to some short stories and poems by Edgar Allan Poe. Stop by the library and see Miss Debbie at your earliest convenience to register for the Kids Book Group “Tuesdays with Stories” and to pick up your print-out of these works.

A Haunted Reading of The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe
October 25th

Join us outside for a haunted reading of The Raven. Travel the trail between the library and the baseball field and read illuminated text from Poe’s amazing poem. Perhaps you’ll see Poe himself in the woods? Then join us back inside for Halloween Treats and a Halloween Party for the kids.
