This is not your usual book club! Here’s how it works: each month, PCPL librarians will select a topic. If you want to join us, read a fiction or non-fiction book of your choice on the topic and then join us for coffee & conversation in the library.

Join the PCPL Book Discussion Group on Friday, June 2nd at 12:00PM for a chat about your favorite biography or autobiography.  New members are always welcome!

Our goal is to provide families with opportunities to introduce children to reading and language in a fun and interactive manner. Storytime attendance helps improve and reinforce early literacy skills.

Family Storytime typically lasts about 45 minutes and includes stories, flannel boards, fingerplays, rhymes, movement, songs and a related craft or activity. Ages 0-Kindergarten welcome.

Please contact Caroline Shoenthal, cshoenthal@powhatanlibrary.net with questions regarding children’s programs.
