Join us as we have activities and discussions based off this month's book. This month is "Chasing Vermeer" by Blue Balliett. When a book of unexplainable occurrences brings Petra Andalee and Calder Pillay together, strange things start to happen: seemingly unrelated events connect, an eccentric old woman seeks their company, and an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears. Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal, where no one — neighbors, parents, teachers — is spared from suspicion. As Petra and Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth, they must draw on their powers of intuition, their problem-solving skills, and their knowledge of Vermeer. Can they decipher a crime that has left even the FBI baffled? Refreshments will be served. Registration begins January 10th at the Information Desk. For more information, please contact Alisha Nolin, Youth Services Librarian, at 419-874-3135 x107 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Join us for a fun discussion about this month’s book selection. We will be discussing "The Island of Dr. Libris" by Chris Grabenstein. What if your favorite characters came to life? Billy’s spending the summer in a lakeside cabin that belongs to the mysterious Dr. Libris. But something strange is going on. Besides the security cameras everywhere, there’s Dr. Libris’s private bookcase. Whenever Billy opens the books inside, he can hear sounds coming from the island in the middle of the lake. The clash of swords. The twang of arrows. Sometimes he can even feel the ground shaking. It’s almost as if the stories he’s reading are coming to life! But that’s impossible . . . isn’t it? Registration begins at the Information Desk on January 14th at 9:00 am. For more information, please contact Alyssa Bullock at 419-874-3135 x127 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
