Brown Bag Book Club is back for the summer! Each month, children in grades 3–6 will read a book and enjoy fun activities along with a sweet treat. Participants may bring a “brown bag” lunch if they choose; beverages will be provided. For June, we will be reading Holes by Louis Sachar. Participants can pick up their book from the 2nd floor Ask Here desk after signing up by clicking the link below.
Quick book description: Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnats. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending every day digging holes. It doesn’t take Stanley long to realize they aren’t just building character; they are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous novel.
