Tomorrow (June 1st) is a busy day for the Group!

We will be hosting our Sci~Fi Summer at the Library Launch Party at the Rotary Park (next to the Middle School) from 11am ~ 2pm. We will be registering kiddos for our Summer Reading programs & giving out information for our new Sensory Story Time program. We will provide hotdogs, chips & drinks for participants & a few games for them to enjoy.

We will also begin our June Group Read discussion of Imzadi by Peter David. The thread is already up & we hope everyone gets a chance to join in with their thoughts on this read.

Finally we will open up our Nominations thread for our July Group Read...nominations will stay open until the 7th so please suggest some more of those awesome reads you guys have been telling us about! :)

The poll is now up for selecting which book you would like for our July Group Read. It will be open for the next week giving everyone the rest of the month to get a copy of the winner.

Both are available at the Library, on READS, or we can get them through our ILL program :)

The discussion for our next Group Read starts today! We will be reading & discussing The Shack by William Paul Young The Shack by William Paul Young

After some consideration, we decided to make each Group Read bi-monthly rather than monthly in order to give everyone more time to obtain a copy & not feel so "rushed" in participating.
We are hoping the extended time period will encourage greater participation as well as encouraging nominations of a greater variety of books!

Looking forward to discussing this with everyone! :)
