Our Caldecott Club program will take place tonight Monday May 12 at 7 p.m. to celebrate the 95th annual Children's Book Week. The Caldecott Club is a great hour-long family book club, where we read picture books together via the big screen. Because today is the start of Children's Book Week, we're going to have a special program, celebrating our favorite winners of the Caldecott Medal. Feel free to bring your own favorites, and we'll try to read as many as we can. We also will serve lemonade and cookies! No registration needed, and all ages are welcome. Come and enjoy some wonderful pre-bedtime reading with your kids!
