Between the Pages: Middle Grade Book Talks

Whether your child is a reluctant reader or an avid one, we think you’ll find their next great read at our evening of book talks. A book talk is a short talk about a book with the goal of convincing you to read it. We invite parents and caregivers to attend with children ages 8-12 on Wednesday, May 25th from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Register today at our Events Calendar.
