You won’t want to miss our March Kid and Tween STEAM activities! Starting Tuesday, March 9th, you can come pick up our paper towel experiment kits at the front desk. Our bottle experiments will be available a couple weeks later on the 23rd.
Hello Mother Daughter Book Club friends! Welcome to our American Girls discussion page. For our March 4, 2021 meeting, we will highlight our library’s incredible collection of American Girl books, and you can help us! Here’s what you need to do:
1. Check out an American Girl book. You can find them in our catalog here.

2. Read the book together.

3. Create costumes for yourselves in the time period of the American Girl book you chose. (This is totally fun, but also totally optional.)
4. Find a “companion” book that takes place in the same time period as your American Girl book or explains something that your main character likes so you can share it with our book club.
5. Come to our Mother Daughter Book Club meeting on Thursday, March 4 @ 6:30- 7:30 p.m. in your costume for an American Girl fashion show! We will all get to tell each other about the book we chose.
*We will hand out a Take ‘n Go craft at the meeting.

On our Facebook event page, you can talk with other MDBC members, and if any of you want to get together, read the same book, and do your “fashion” show together, you can connect to do planning here. You can also post thoughts about your book.

This month for Books for Boys we’re reading and discussing A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park.
Maritza, our resident artist, will bring her throwing wheel and show everyone how to do ceramics. We will also make pinch pots for everyone to take home.
