Parent/Child Book Club

The newly formed Parent/Child Book Club has selected our next book.  We will be reading Ben Franklin’s in My Bathroom! by Candace Fleming. Join us on Monday, March 26th @ 5:30 p.m.  to discuss the book, share snacks,  and pick our next book.  Stop by the front desk for your copy.


Nolan is a typical kid living in a typical 21st century American town. Ben Franklin is, well, Ben Franklin – Founding Father, inventor of the lightning rod and bifocals, and more. When, through a bizarre set of circumstances, Nolan and his little sister, Olive, find Ben in their house, chaos isn’t far behind. From introducing him to the toaster to taking him to the public library (another Ben invention) to preventing a nosy neighbor from blowing Ben’s cover, Nolan does his best to be Ben’s tour guide to the new world he helped form.  -Goodreads
