"Freedom Writers Diary" Mini-Book Read Starts
We are inviting everyone to join us in a mini-read this October and November. The title chosen is "The Freedom Writers Diary" by Erin Gruwell and her students. It is the inspiring story of how "unteachable" students found themselves through writing. The Friends of the Library are hosting a Coffee House as our kick-off event on Saturday, October 4th, at 10:00 a.m. in the library. BHS students will be reading excerpts from the book. We have free copies available for the public. Join us!
Lil Bookie Monster Book Drive Success

They will be joining us in a celebration party on Thursday, October 16th, at 6:30 p.m. in the Children's Library. You're invited to join us for stories, music, and treats for our youngest readers, aged 0 to 3. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we can make sure all our lil monsters have enough cookies that night!
