Book discussion: The Outsiders

This time, our book discussion title will be The Outsiders by SE Hinton. The library will host discussions on this title on Monday, July 23 - 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!

No one ever said life was easy, but Ponyboy thinks he's got things figured out. He knows he can count on his brothers and friends, and not on much else—besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang whose idea of a good time is beating up on the “greasers.” 

Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of society remains as powerful as when it was published in 1967, and this dramatic novel is recognized to have laid the groundwork for the entire teen lit genre.

We're selecting discussion books from the PBS series The Great American Read. See the list of 100 titles

Kids: choose one of your stuffed animals to spend an overnight at the library!

You'll drop off your beloved pals on Friday, July 20 between 4 and 4:30 pm, and they'll get to spend the night at the library on a camp out just for stuffy friends! Join a librarian for a quick story to settle the animals in for a night of fun. 

We promise your pal will return full of stories about their overnight adventure when you pick them up at 9:30 am Saturday, July 21. (Animals MUST be picked up in this timeframe.) They'll show you a short video of the adventures your stuffed friends had without you. 

Parents: make sure it’s an animal your child can part with overnight.
