Beach Bag Book Club
We have once again teamed up with the Merrick, North Merrick and Bellmore Library to bring back the Beach Bag Book Club. At each event, hosted by young adult author Jen Calonita (Secrets of My Hollywood Life and Belles series), teens will get to discuss a book pre-selected for them with not only Ms. Calonita, but with the author of the book itself! 7pm. Everyone that signs up gets a beach bag to tote all of your favorite books around in this summer. Sign up in advance online or at the Adult Reference Desk. Open to grades 6 and up. June, July & August meetings will take place at the Merrick Library. Mark your calendars for the 2013 BBB Club dates:
