Caldecott Club Tonight!

Please join us tonight Monday April 13 at 7 p.m. to kick-off a new season of our Caldecott Club, our family book club. We'll be reading together, via the big screen, some of the best new picture books published this year. Then we'll have a brief discussion about each book, and conclude by voting on our favorite of the night. Of course, we'll also be serving lemonade and cookies!

This year, the club sessions will be particularly important to me, as I have the honor of serving on the 2016 Caldecott Committee and will be listening closely to the opinions of kids and adults alike about the books we read.

No registration is necessary for this fun program. Just come and enjoy reading together some wonderful books!
