Take a Kid Lit Coffee Break This Summer
Adults who love children's literature get a chance to relax and talk about books . . . with me! I'm hosting two Kid Lit Coffee Breaks again this summer. One is Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 3 p.m. The other is Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 3 p.m. We'll meet in the Youth Program Room to drink coffee and eat delicious desserts, all from the library's very own East 59. And we'll talk about all the amazing kid lit books we've been reading. There will be door prizes each time. This event is open to parents, teachers, librarians, and the young at heart. No registration is required.
