    Afternoon Book Club:  (ages 18 and over) -  Meets last Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm.

Books chosen are slightly older popular titles so that we can order multiple copies from the MORE system and no book purchase is necessary to participate.

                   Tuesday, May 30:       La's Orchestra Saves the World by Alexander McCall Smith

It is 1939. Lavender--La to her friends--decides to flee London, not only to avoid German bombs but also to escape the memories of her shattered marriage. Settling in a small town, she organizes an amateur orchestra from the village and the local RAF base and falls in love with one of her prized recruits--Feliks, a shy, proper Polish refugee.

          The Silver Star    by Jeannette Walls

1970: Two motherless sisters--Bean. twelve, and Liz, fifteen--are shuttled to Virginia, where their Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying mansion that's been in their family for generations. When school starts in the fall, Bean easily adjusts and makes friends, and Liz becomes increasingly withdrawn. Then something happens to Liz and Bean is left to challenge the injustice of the adult world.

Middle School/Teen Book Club (for those going into 5th - 9th grades)    

 We will meet again in the summer of 2017 with new faciliatators.  Watch for dates soon!  During the school year the group meets less often as participants are busy with schoolwork, but meets occasionally as the group chooses.   Meetings have been on the last Tuesday of each month at 3:45 for about 45 minutes, but day and time are up for negotiation.  Or occasional meetings can happen just once or twice a year for busy students.   B-W Bus #9 stops right at the library at 3:35 (remember a note that morning if you are changing buses).  A snack is provided if groups meets during the schoolyear.    Call the library if interested  (715-684-3813) and we will get you a free copy of the next book (ask for Ivy or Amanda or Rebecca).    No buying of a book is necessary.  Come have fun and meet other people who like to read too!
