Shelton Family Read – Dying to Meet You: 43 Old Cemetery Road

The first 75 families will receive a free copy of Dying to Meet You: 43 Old Cemetery Road, by Kate Klise, thanks to the Weller Foundation.  Books will be handed out starting April 1st.

Pen Pal Program

Inspired by events in Kate Klise’s Dying to Meet You participants at both libraries will be matched with pen-pals from the other library.  Write back and forth, get to know each other by letter, then meet your pen pal at the end-of-month party!  Register at either library by April 1st!

Pen-Pal Pizza Party, Thursday, April 28, 6pm-8pm. A meet and greet custom-designed for all the kids (from both libraries) in our Pen-Pal Program! Meet each other, and play a game or two, enjoy some pizza and see who really knows their pen-pal; register at Plumb beginning April 14.
