Kid Lit Coffee Break: Premium Blend
The winter meeting of our book group for adults who love to read children's literature will focus on our staff favorites of 2017. We're calling it Kid Lit Coffee Break: Premium Blend. Mark your calendars for Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 3 p.m. Miss Katie Jane (that's me!) will be sharing some of our favorite picture books, juvenile fiction and nonfiction, and teen novels published in 2017. (Our full lists will be available soon. Keep your eyes on this blog!) There will be free coffee and desserts from the library's East 59 Café, and door prizes will consist of brand-new copies of some of the featured titles. Registration is not necessary. Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone to the Youth Program Room.
January 7 will also be the first Sunday with our extended hours. We will now be open from 1-6 p.m. on Sundays.
Documentary Screening: Walt Disney, December 27-28

Features rare archival footage from the Disney vaults, scenes from some of his greatest films, interviews with biographers and animators, and the designers who helped turn his dream of Disneyland into reality.
An Unprecedented look at the life and legacy of America’s master storyteller.
