October Book Discussion
Join us at the Libby library for A Hot Drink and a Good Book, our monthly book discussion group. This month’s book is Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. Leo Borlock follows the unspoken rule at Mica Area High School: don’t stand out—under any circumstances! Then Stargirl arrives at Mica High and everything changes—for Leo and for the entire school. After 15 years of home schooling, Stargirl bursts into tenth grade in an explosion of color and a clatter of ukulele music, enchanting the Mica student body. In a celebration of nonconformity, Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the fleeting, cruel nature of popularity—and the thrill and inspiration of first love. Copies of the book are available to check out at the library.
Due dates for book discussion materials are final. If the book is more than 3 days overdue, the cost of the book may be charged to your account. Books for discussion are lent to us from libraries around the state and are often in demand by another library immediately following our use. In order to deliver book discussion kits to libraries in a timely manner, missing books must be replaced immediately. This cost is charged by the library that owns and lends the kit to the library borrowing the kit. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to absorb this cost.
We can always place a hold on a regular library copy of the book for you to check out and finish reading, if necessary. Please contact Jessie at 293-2778 if you have any questions. Thank you.
