Originally planned for the January meeting, this topic has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 13 at 10 a.m. No registration required.

Binge Reading

With extreme weather making binge-watching television a popular option for entertainment, why not consider binge-reading as a great alternative? Many authors craft series running from trilogies to alphabet themed multi-titles. Flex your brain with a good series. The library can help you find a new author to explore or help you revisit an old standby.
