Nineteen Minutes by Jodi PicoultThe libraries purpose for reading is to inform and entertain. Our Reader’s Perspective Book Club read a book last month called Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. It was based on the issue of bullying and its effect on children, parents and the community. Reader’s Perspective Book Club meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 2:00 PM. See you next time!

New Faces at Northwest!

During the summer we have a lot going on, and this summer Northwest has five interns helping us out.  We also have many new volunteers who chose to donate their valuable time in between school semesters. We extend our welcome to those joining us this summer and we hope you will all do the same!   

A Tree Grows in the Library?!!

This summer the support pillar in the middle of the library has been turned into a tree!  If you haven't seen it, you should really come by and take a look.  The tree is decked out with vines, monkeys, and even a snake, and has been delighting children and adults as they come in.  Believe me when I tell you summer at NW Branch is WILD!
