Cranberry Box Discussion

On Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m., we’re offering a unique way for middle school and high students to earn community service hours. Local author Joy Jones has written a short story titled The Cranberry Box and is looking for feedback from pre-teen and teen readers. Participants will earn two community service hours for taking part in this event. Copies of the story are available at the Library’s main desk; you must read the story before the discussion. Registration required.
