Fight the winter chill in COCOA CLUB!

Does your child enjoy hearing about great new chapter books AND want to talk about the books they love with other children? Join us for COCOA CLUB at the Main Library! Children ages 8-11 can hear all about some new books from Miss Katie, and bring a book of their own to share with the group. If they would like, they can write mini-book reviews to post  here on the Youth Services blog! 

Cocoa Club will meet Wednesday, January 28 at 4:00pm.

*Children are asked to bring a book that they have read and are prepared to talk briefly about. It can be a library book or a book from home!
