Family Book Club

This read-along book club takes place each month! Patrons can pick up a free copy of each month’s book selection in the Children’s Room. Children’s Librarian Chase Chauffe will read the book aloud over two to three Read-Along sessions throughout the week, then host a Book Discussion event on Saturday. These events are hosted on the library’s Zoom account. You can find each month’s event dates and register to participate on our event calendar.
