The Page is Loading... is a bring-your-own-book club. We don't assign a book, just come ready to talk about something you've read lately, or your favorite book ever, or just books in general. We have a theme each month, but they're guidelines, not rules. If you're stuck in a rut, come by to get suggestions for new books. Just finished something great? Come tell us all about it! Geared toward preteens (grades 4-6), but older teens are also welcome. The Page is Loading meets the third Tuesday of the month from 4:30-5:30 p.m.

SALT meets the third Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. SALT is members only. To learn more and apply, contact Hannah at the library.
