Mystery Book Club takes a break!

The Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club will take a break for the Summer.  As we are getting ready for the children to come into the library for the summer, our reduction in staff and limited budget means we need more time to get things done.  Bonnie will be helping with the Summer Reading Program and needs a little time to devote to creating some of this programming.  We will resume again in September when the children are back in school. 

Just bring a favorite author that you discovered over the summer or have always liked.  We will discuss what topic we want for October and have a little snack.  It is always good to have a little food with our discussion.  So take a little break, explore some new authors or revisit your friends and we will see you on September 21st at 2 pm.
