July 2nd: Summer Fun Book Club Meet & Greet Ice Cream Party!
Meet Nancy, our book club leader, discuss the upcoming book selections and eat ice cream! We will have all books available for you to see.

July 9th: Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland - One stormy night on an island of warring dragon tribes, five eggs from five separate tribes are stolen from their nests. The eggs hatch in a secret location, and the dragonets are raised to fulfill a destiny they neither understand nor wish to face. They tire of the secrecy that has dictated their lives at the behest of the shadowy organization the Talons of Peace, and they look for any opportunity to break free. When that opportunity finally comes, it has ramifications they could never possibly imagine. (Ages 8+)

July 23rd:  Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke - A little red button crashes to earth while Zita and her pal Joseph are out cavorting around. Of course, no one could resist pushing a mystery button, which pops open an interdimensional portal that whisks Joseph away. Zita follows and lands on a delightfully bizarre alien planet, where she sees Joseph being captured by a tentacled, scuba-headed creature. She makes some allies, takes off after him, and zany mishaps and dashing adventures ensue. (Graphic Novel) (Ages 8+)

August 6th: Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage - Rising sixth grader Miss Moses LoBeau lives in the small town of Tupelo Landing, NC, where everyone's business is fair game and no secret is sacred. She washed ashore in a hurricane eleven years ago, and she's been making waves ever since. Although Mo hopes someday to find her "upstream mother," she's found a home with the Colonel--a café owner with a forgotten past of his own--and Miss Lana, the fabulous café hostess. She will protect those she loves with every bit of her strong will and tough attitude. So when a lawman comes to town asking about a murder, Mo and her best friend, Dale Earnhardt Johnson III, set out to uncover the truth in hopes of saving the only family Mo has ever known. (Ages 10+)

August 20th: Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead - There are many changes in the life of Georges, whose father lost his job and whose family has therefore moved to a new apartment, while his mother works double shifts at the hospital and hardly sees her family. Georges quickly gets to know Safer, a boy who lives upstairs, and finds himself involved, whether he likes it or not, with Safer's favorite pastime: spying on the rest of the building. At school, Georges is an outsider often bullied by the popular kids, and it looks like the abuse is going to come to a head soon in a legendary science project, whose results are commonly believed to foretell your destiny. (Ages 9+) Book clubs
