Brown Bag Book Club is back for the fall! Each month, children in grades 3–6 will read a book then meet to chat about the book and enjoy fun activities and a sweet treat. Participants may bring a “brown bag” snack if they choose; beverages will be provided. For September, we will be reading The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. Participants can pick up their book from the 2nd floor Ask Here desk after clicking the link below.
Quick book description: Having spent twenty-seven years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.
