Join us for a fun discussion about this month’s book selection via Zoom. We will be reading "Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer" by Kelly Jones. Twelve-year-old Sophie Brown feels like a fish out of water when she and her parents move from Los Angeles to the farm they’ve inherited from a great-uncle. But farm life gets more interesting when a cranky chicken appears and Sophie discovers the hen can move objects with the power of her little chicken brain: jam jars, the latch to her henhouse, the entire henhouse....And then more of her great-uncle’s unusual chickens come home to roost. Determined, resourceful Sophie learns to care for her flock, earning money for chicken feed, collecting eggs. But when a respected local farmer tries to steal them, Sophie must find a way to keep them (and their superpowers) safe.

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.

Join us as we talk about this month's book online using Zoom: "We're Not From Here" by Geoff Rodkey.

The first time I heard about Planet Choom, we'd been on Mars for almost a year. But life on the Mars station was grim, and since Earth was no longer an option (we may have blown it up), it was time to find a new home. That's how we ended up on Choom with the Zhuri. They're very smart. They also look like giant mosquitos. But that's not why it's so hard to live here. There's a lot that the Zhuri don't like: singing (just ask my sister, Ila), comedy (one joke got me sent to the principal's office), or any kind of emotion. The biggest problem, though? The Zhuri don't like us. And if humankind is going to survive, it's up to my family to change their minds. No pressure.

Online registration begins on April 1st and books can be picked up at the Youth Services desk or through the library's curbside service.
