Kick off the summer with a newly decorated tote bag to hold all your summer reads! We'll supply the materials--you supply the imagination for your decorated bag. Keep it for yourself or give it to a friend. Class size is limited; please call 827-6960 to reserve your space. Our young adult summer craft programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Bartram Trail Branch Library.

This month's selection is The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani. Two star-crossed lovers--Enza and Ciro--meet and separate, until, finally, the power of their love changes both of their lives forever. Set during the years preceding and during World War I. New members are always welcome.
Friday, October 2 @ 10am
This month's selection is Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.
A murder...a tragic accident...or just parents behaving badly? What's indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what? Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads. Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She's funny and biting, passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all. New members are always welcome.
