Story Room in the Children's Department at 6 PM

The We Be Book N' Book Club is a book club suitable for children aged 8-14. We meet every third Monday evening of each month in the Storyroom of the Children's Department at 6 PM. Titles range from fiction and fantasy to non-fiction, history, and culture, and even includes some popular graphic novels! Hard copies of each title are available at the library for checkout on the Book Club Shelf on the first floor of the library.

This month we are reading: September 19th—No Better Friend: Young Reader’s Edition: A Man, a Dog, and Their Incredible True Story of Friendship and Survival in World War II by Robert Weintraub, 304 pp., recommended reader age, 10+.
No Better Friend tells the incredible true story of Frank Williams, a radarman in Britain's Royal Air Force, and Judy, a purebred pointer, who met as prisoners of war during World War II. Judy, who became the war's only official canine POW, was a fiercely loyal dog who sensed danger--warning her fellow prisoners of imminent attacks and protecting them from brutal beatings. Frank and Judy's friendship, an unbreakable bond forged in the worst circumstances, is one of the great recently unearthed stories of World War II.
