A couple of notes: sadly, we have retired the History Book Club. We have also changed the name of the Tweens Book Club to the Homeschool Book Club. And because it has proved to be so popular and our space is limited, we’ve had to require a first-come first-served pre-registration for that club alone. Registration opens August 27th. To register, phone the main library number, 832-559-4200,and ask for the YA Librarian.
