The first 30-45 minutes of the program we will spend reading and the rest of the time will be spent discussing what we read.
This program is currently only offered on Zoom and is for kids in grades 4-6. “A Good Kind of Trouble” is available on Hoopla, CloudLibrary, and OverDrive. Print copies of the book will be available for pickup at the library at the end of March.
