Fall for Kid Lit Coffee Break

We kicked off our Kid Lit Coffee Break program this summer.  Now it's time for the fall edition!  Kid Lit Coffee Break is for adults who love children's books . . . reading them and talking about them.  Miss Katie Jane, reader extraordinaire (that's me!), will share some of her favorite recent reads.  This usually leads to lots of discussions about the greater kid lit world and also the titles our attendees have been reading.  There will be free coffee and desserts from the library's East 59 Cafe.  And door prizes!  So join us this Sunday, October 8, 2017 at 3 p.m. in the Youth Program Room at the end of the starred hallway in the Kid Zone.
