Summer Reading Kickoff
Friday, June 23rd, 4-7 p.m.
“Once Upon a Summer Reading” is our theme this year. Adults can get summer book recommendations and fill out book slips for each book they've read so far this summer. Each book slip will be entered into the weekly raffle drawing for one of our fabulous prizes! A picnic dinner will be provided for all who attend.


 
Monthly Book Talks
Meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Do you love to read outside of your comfort zone?  Do you enjoy talking about books with others?  Then our monthly Book Talk is for you!  This informal discussion group takes place at two separate times on the second Tuesday of the month - it doesn't matter which session you attend.  We vote annually in October for the books to read during the next calendar year. We choose among fiction, nonfiction, recent award winners, and classics.  Copies of the latest book are available at the Circulation Desk.  The following list shows upcoming book discussion dates and the book(s) to be discussed:

    July 11, 2017                The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar

   August 8, 2017             The Book of Aron (Andrew Carnegie Medal - Fiction)
                                         by Jim Shepard


Suggestions for the next year's potential reading list can be submitted anytime January through September, with voting on all suggestions taking place during the month of October.  Please contact Amy Bain, Library Assistant, with any reading suggestions at info@bakerfreelib.org.
