Kid's Book Group Reads A Whole New Ballgame for July 20th


Kid's Book Group Reads "A Whole New Ballgame" for July 20, 2016
Join Book Bunch for their July 20th get-together at 4:00PM.  The group discusses A Whole New Ballgame by Phil Bildner, followed by a fun activity.  Books are available in the Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
Rip and Red are best friends whose fifth-grade year is nothing like what they expected. They have a crazy new tattooed teacher named Mr. Acevedo, who doesn't believe in tests or homework and who likes off-the-wall projects, the more "off" the better. And guess who's also their new basketball coach? Mr. Acevedo! Easy-going Rip is knocked completely out of his comfort zone. And for Red, who has autism and really needs things to be exactly a certain way, the changes are even more of a struggle. But together these two make a great duo who know how to help each other—and find ways to make a difference—in the classroom and on the court.

With its energetic and authentic story and artwork, A Whole New Ballgame by Phil Bildner is a fresh, fun book about school, sports, and friendship.

Tween Book Group Reads The Only Ones for July 14th


Tween Book Group Reads "The Only Ones" for July 14, 2016
The Only Ones by Aaron Starmer is the July selection for Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8.  Join the group on Thursday, July 14th @ 2:30PM for a snack, discussion and short activity.

Copies of the book are available in both the Teen Area and  Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
"Call it coincidence, call it fate. This is the place you come. There's no one else. This is the entire world."

These words welcome Martin Maple to the village of Xibalba. Like the other children who've journeyed there, he faces an awful truth. 

He was forgotten.

When families and friends all disappeared one afternoon, these were the only ones left behind.
There's Darla, who drives a monster truck, Felix, who uses string and wood to rebuild the Internet, Lane, who crafts elaborate contraptions, and nearly 40 others, each equally brilliant and peculiar.

Inspired by the prophesies of a mysterious boy who talks to animals, Martin believes he can reunite them with their loved ones. But believing and knowing are two different things, as he soon discovers with the push of a button, flip of a switch, turn of a dial. . . .
