Pass the Book is back!

Paa the book
Our great read out loud program, Pass the Book is back for another year!  Starting Wednesday, February 11 at 6:05 pm, we will be exploring some new and classic short stories by reading them out loud as a group.

If you haven’t join us before, Pass the Book is the perfect way to enjoy a very early spring evening.

We will meet every Wednesday from February 11 through March 25.  All we need from you is your eyes and/or ears. If reading out loud is not your cup of tea, you are still welcome to come and listen to the stories.

Please come read, listen, and enjoy!

Co-sponsored by the Library and the Friends of Canaan Village.
