Chick-Lits Book Club

The Rose Hill Chick-Lits meet once a month to discuss both classic books and new releases. The group is always looking for new members to participate and exchange opinions on literature. Extra book copies can be made available or requested from other libraries.

The book discussion for January is about A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.

1000 Books

Sharing just one book a day gives your child the building blocks for lasting success! Reading sparks your child’s imagination and the rewards are priceless. Read any book to your infant, toddler or preschooler. The goal is to finish 1000 books before your child enters kindergarten. The library has special prizes for milestones as you go.
