Introducing May's Boxed Book Society theme: romance! On the first of the month, we'll drop a video on our Facebook and YouTube pages that introduces the month's theme and some great books you can read on theme. Registrants will receive one of the books in a book box that also contains delightful treats! The book box, and all its contents, is yours to keep. After you register, you can drop by the library any time during open hours to pick up your book box in preparation for the meeting. We'll meet in person at the library and simultaneously on Zoom on May 24th at 5pm to chat about books! Please join us in the venue that is most comfortable for you. Also note May's meeting will not be on the last Monday of the month due to the Memorial Day holiday. If you register for the program and receive a book box, meeting attendance is required.
The best part is, there's no pressure to read the book before the meeting! We know that teens already have homework, deadlines and other pressures everyday. So, if you read that month's book, great! Come chat about it. If you didn't get to the book before the meeting, come hang out with us anyway! We can talk about a book you loved that you recently read or one you hated that you read five years ago. This program is a pressure-free time to hang out and chat about books!
May's book box will contain a copy of "A Very Large Expanse of Sea" by Tahereh Mafi, along with other treats. This program is open to teens in grades 7–12. Registration opens on May 1st at 9am.
