Join us as we talk about this month's book online using Zoom: "Samantha Spinner and the Super-Secret Plans" by Russell Ginn. For Samantha Spinner, it just isn't fair. Her uncle Paul disappeared, and here's what he left: Samantha's sister got a check for $2,400,000,000. Samantha's brother got the New York Yankees. And Samantha...got a rusty red umbrella with a tag hanging off of its worn handle. The tag says "Watch out for the RAIN." Thanks, Uncle Paul. Even harder for Samantha to understand is, after all the strawberry waffles they've shared, how could Uncle Paul leave without saying goodbye? The answer is simple. Sam knows in her heart that uncle Paul is in danger. If only he'd left a clue...Well, if Sam's Uncle Paul taught her anything, it's that not everything is exactly what it seems. Which is why we should pay close attention to that rusty red umbrella, and never trust a monkey at a hula-hoop contest. The RAIN is coming and whether she likes it or not, Samantha Spinner is about to find herself mixed up in some super-puzzling, super-dangerous, super-secret plans. And if she's brave enough, she might just find Uncle Paul. Online registration is now open and books can be picked up at the Youth Services desk or through the library's curbside service.

Join us for a fun discussion about this month’s book selection via Zoom. We will be reading "The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street" by Karina Yan Glaser. The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street. It's practically another member of the family. So when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have eleven days to do whatever it takes to stay in their beloved home and convince the dreaded Beiderman just how wonderful they are. And all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home

Our discussion will take place via Zoom and a Zoom link will be e-mailed to you before the program. Online registration is now open. Digital copies are available on Hoopla: https://www.hoopladigital.com/or physical copies are available at the Youth Services desk.
