Program Description

Program Details

Join us for a monthly book discussion just for families that are homeschooling or learning remotely!

This year we have selected a diverse collection of books that mirror our world, with a special focus on stories about historically excluded identities and groups of people. Families are invited to read the book of the month (together or independently), then come to the Library for a discussion and related activities.

This event and books are geared for school-age kids or middle-grade reading level, but all ages are welcome to attend.

October 6: What is your favorite book you've recently read?
Come share about some of the great books you've read and pick up a copy of next month’s selection.
