Reading as a family draws us together! Our new Family Book Club is designed especially for kids in elementary school to learn, share and discuss important topics. April's title is "Cast Away: Poems for Our Time" by Naomi Shihab Nye.
How to participate:
1. Get the book. The first 20 families to register (using the Zoom link below) will receive a copy of the book to keep. Copies also can be:
• Requested through the library catalog: https://catalog.swanlibraries.net/client/en_US/ops/search/results?qu=cast+away+nye&te=&lm=OPS
• Downloaded instantly through Hoopla: https://www.hoopladigital.com/artist/26777130?page=1&releaseDate=LAST_12_MONTHS

2. Discuss. Families can participate in one or both ways:
• Join us for a librarian-led Zoom book discussion and poetry workshop on April 25, where kids and adults can share their thoughts with the community, as well as learn more about poetry.
• Discuss at home as a family using this resource guide: https://www.oppl.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Cast-Away-Family-Guide.pdf
