Adult Program

Orphan Train Book Discussion

Join us 7pm Monday when our Evening Book Club will discuss the Orphan Train by Christina Kline.  This 2013 bestseller features a teenager struggling with living in foster care who reluctantly befriends an elderly woman who teaches her much about life, especially through her own experiences as a member of the Orphan Train.  The Orphan Trains were an attempt to send children out from New York to the supposedly healthier life in the Midwest, from the 1850's to 1929. This is a moving story of resilience and empathy.  There’s still plenty of time to pick up a copy of The Orphan Train from our customer service desk and join the discussion in the meeting room this coming Monday, February 6th.

Ho Ho Ho Mystery

Liss is surprised when an old friend from high school asks her to spend a week at the Christmas tree farm she recently inherited from a great-uncle. Realizing it would be the perfect chance for her and her husband Dan to get away from work, Liss happily accepts the offer and packs her bags for the tiny town of New Boston.It's hardly the idyllic vacation locale they'd hoped for, especially when needling neighbors start raising questions about the farm's dark history. Who was the man whose body was found neatly netted in a shipment of Scotch pine? Why did the owner vanish into thin air? And why are the trees growing so close together, forming a maze more twisted than a Celtic knot? What a Christmas mystery to unfold. History Mystery Book club will discuss this book on December 21, 2016 @ 2:00 PM.
