Which was Better: Book VS. Movie Family Book Club - Monday, November 27 @ 6:00 pm - Before our meeting, read The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling as a family. At the meeting, we’ll talk about the book and then we’ll watch the movie while snacking on popcorn and punch! After the movie we’ll talk about the similarities and differences, then decide which we liked better. Extra copies of each month’s title will be available for checkout at the circulation desk. Recommended for families with children ages 5 and up. Please register!
