Come meet the Grinch! No holiday season is complete without the Grinch, Max, Cindy-Lou, and all the residents of "Who"-ville, in this heartwarming story about the effects of the Christmas spirit on even the smallest and coldest of hearts.
The Grinch himself will be joining us for a very special story time! Children will be able to color, talk about doing good deeds, listen to the story, and create a craft. And, of course, Mr. Grinch will be happy to pose for photos, and give out grinchy hugs and high-fives.
The event will take place on Saturday, December 12th at 9:00 AM. Please arrive promptly at the start time to enjoy all that is being offered.
Our new teen book club has launched! The selection for December is Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. If you loved Eleanor and Park, Hazel and Augustus, and Mia and Adam, you'll love the story of Maddy, a girl who's literally allergic to the outside world, and Olly, the boy who moves in next door... and becomes the greatest risk she's ever taken. This innovative and heartfelt debut novel unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, illustrations, and more.
The book club is led by Karen Willey, an 18 year teaching veteran who has spent 17 of those years teaching Language Arts to middle school students. An avid reader herself, Karen has presented numerous times at the state wide Festival of Words conference, focusing on young adult literature. Her educational philosophy has always been to create life long readers and that continues to be her focus today, both in the classroom and in the community.
The discussion will take place on Saturday, December 12th at 11:00 AM. Snacks and drinks will also be served. No prior registration is required. For more information, call 302-226-2665.
