Crosby Book Club Meets Friday, March 17 @ 2 pm

Crosby Book Club will meet on Friday, March 17 at 2 pm in the Meeting Room.  This month, readers chose their book club book from a display of wrapped books where the titles were hidden.  In essence, they went on a blind date with a book.  Were the dates fun?  Disappointing?  Did anyone find true love?  Join us to find out!
