Families with kids ages 9 – 12 are invited to join our Kid/Parent Book Club. Come share the joy of reading and meet other families in your community. We will meet on Monday, September 17th @ 5:30 p.m. to discuss Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. Stop by the front desk to pick up your copy.
Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven — which may not even exist. Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy and dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.
