Tween Book Group Reads We are all made of molecules for July 12th


Tween Book Group Reads "We Are All Made of Molecules" for July 12, 2018
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading We are all made of molecules by Susin Nielsen for their get-together on Thursday, July 12th at 2:00PM. Page Turners begins with snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.

Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower-level Young Readers’ Room.

About the Book
Stewart, 13: Socially clueless genius.
Ashley, 14: Popular with everyone but her teachers

Ashley's and Stewart's worlds collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. The Brady Bunch it isn't. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it—he's always wanted a sister. But Ashley is 110 percent horrified. She already has to hide the real reason her dad moved out; “Spewart” could further threaten her position at the top of the social ladder.

They're complete opposites, but they have one thing in common: they—like everyone else—are made of molecules.

Kid's Book Group Reads Waylon! for June 20th


Kid's Book Group Reads "Waylon!" for June 20, 2018
Book Bunch reads Waylon! One Awesom Thing by Sarah Pennypacker for their meeting on Wednesday, June 20th.  Join the group at 4:00PM for a discussion of the book and a short activity. 

Copies of the book are available in the Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
Waylon has lots of ideas for making life more awesome through science, like teleportation, human gills, and attracting cupcakes by controlling gravity. But it's impossible for him to concentrate on his inventions when he's experiencing his own personal Big Bang.

Arlo Brody is dividing the fourth grade boys into two groups. Waylon would rather be friends with everyone. Well, everyone except the scary new kid, Baxter Boylen.

Waylon's older sister, Neon, is shooting away from the family. He wishes everything would go back to the way it was before she started wearing all black and saying "What's the point?" all the time.

Just when it looks as though Waylon's universe is exploding, something happens to bring it all together again, and it is, without a doubt, One Awesome Thing.

Tween Book Group Reads Hunted for June 14th


Tween Book Group Reads "Hunted" for June 14, 2018
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading Hunted by Meagan Spooner for their get-together on Thursday, June 14th at 2:05PM in room 10 of the Litchfield Middle School. Page Turners begins with an after school snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.

Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower-level Young Readers’ Room.

About the Book
Beauty knows the Beast's forest in her bones--and in her blood. 

Though Yeva grew up with the city's highest aristocrats, far from her father's old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who's ever come close to discovering them.

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there's no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas...or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva's father's misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he'd been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.

Deaf to her sisters' protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory--a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva's only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?
