ALL-AGES BOOK DISCUSSION!

Our next book discussion title will be The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. The library will host discussions on this title on Monday, June 25 - join us at NOON or 7 pm.

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow. This is the amazing, improbable story of Christopher's quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog.

We're selecting discussion books from the PBS series The Great American Read. See the list of 100 titles in The Great American Read at www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read
