Book Club will be reading 13 Ways to Kill Your Community by Doug Griffiths. This book offers practical, implementable steps that can be taken to bring a moribund (in terminal decline; lacking vitality or vigor) community back to life. We invite the public to a general discussion on Tuesday, January 7th at 1:30 pm.

Hey Kids! (and Parents)

Here's a great website to check out anytime from the National Center for Family Literacy. It has a free, online program with weekly interactive activities. Check it out, have some fun, then go read a book :)
