---- — EAST KINGSTON —At the East Kingston Public Library we have a month of activities for all ages. For complete information, check our website, www.eastkingstonlibrary.org or our blog, ekpublib.wordpress.com. Activities are for all ages and interests.
We have two book clubs this month. Our adult readers have chosen “Defending Jacob” by William Landay. Compared to Turow’s early work and well received by other reading groups, it is a legal thriller about a murder trial in Boston and the way it shatters a family. New members are always welcome. We will be discussing this title on February 20 at 7:00 p.m. Come in soon to pick up your copy.
Our grade school readers are meeting to discuss “Capture the Flag” by Kate Messner. In this story, three children meet at the airport in Washington, DC and find themselves embroiled in the mystery of the stolen star spangled banner. The case is further complicated by a mysterious tattooed man, a flamboyant politician and a rambunctious poodle. Staff member, Carly will lead this group on Sat., February 23. Fasten your seat belts. Carly plans some mysterious activities and a pizza lunch! Sign up soon and pick up a copy of the book at the library so you can join us.
The Friends of the Library will host another hands-on botanical workshop on Tues., February 26 at 6:00 p.m. We will be creating a unique terrarium to help us move towards spring. All materials are included, but if you have a favorite container you would like to use bring it along. Price is $30.00 for members of the Friends and $35.00 for non-members. To sign up, stop in the library, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 603-647-8333.
