In January, the Riverton Library launched a Teen Advisory Board. The group is made up of teens ages 13-18 that meet regularly to discuss teen programming and resources at our library. The teens have the opportunity to develop and run programs at the library and earn service hours for school at the same time. If you know a teen that may be interested in contributing to this group, please send them our way.
The next meeting is Wednesday, March 20th at 7:00 PM.
It’s nice to get out of the library every once in a while. I’ve been spending some time at the Palmyra Community Center where I meet with other book lovers once a month to discuss a book that we selected to read as a group. This book club is great! Everybody has their own favorite genre. We have read a quirky dark comedy, “A Man Called Ove”, a true account of the beginning of the FBI, “Killers of the Flower Moon” and, most recently, a fantasy, “Ocean at the End of the Lane.” The group has really pushed me out of my comfort zone.
Our discussions about these books always surprise me. I usually walk away with a viewpoint that I hadn’t even considered while reading the book. Our next meeting is Wednesday, February 20 at 7:00 PM at the Palmyra Community Center. You don’t need to be a Palmyra resident to attend and there is not registration fee. We are reading “Before the Fall” by Noah Hawley. There are lots of copies of this book in the library system so request your copy and come join us!
