Rockin’ Readers Book Group: All 4th through 6th graders are invited to join our monthly book group on Wed., December 19 at 3:30 p.m. December’s book selection is “The Sign of the Beaver” by Elizabeth George Speare. This book centers on 13 year old Matt, left alone to guard the family’s new cabin in the woods. When a stranger steals his gun, Matt knows he has no way to shoot game or to protect himself. Only after meeting the proud, resourceful Indian boy Attean does Matt begin to understand the way of the Beaver clan and their growing problem in adapting to the white man and the changing frontier. A delicious snack will follow a lively discussion. Cupcake Ornament: The holiday fun continues with a program for children 6 and older on making a cute ornament that looks like a cupcake! Don’t miss out on the fun! This event will take place on Wed., December 19 at 6:30 p.m. Sign ups are required for this program. You may sign up online at www.sandownlibrary.us or by calling 887-3428.

This movie is rated PG and will be shown on Thurs., December 27 at 6:00 p.m. Children are welcome to bring a snack...and a friend!
