Lunchtime Literature – Main Library Book Club

This discussion group for men and women will share insights into a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction books. Adults and teens welcome to participate.

Additional information: For those attending the book club a two-hour free parking validation is available for the garage directly below the library. All are invited to bring their lunches for this free program.

We will discuss this month's reading selection, The Circle by Dave Eggers.

Hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful Internet company, Mae Holland begins to question her luck as life beyond her job grows distant, a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, and her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public.

You can pick up a copy of this month's book at the first floor information desk of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, starting 1:00pm August 21

Read to a Dog

Children are invited to read to a Certified Therapy Dog. One of the favorite things for the dog to do is listen to children read lots of stories. Reading to a dog or other pet can help new and reluctant readers gain confidence, increase important reading skills, and develop a love of reading.

Find out more about Read to a Dog.
