Our Jr Friends had so much fun producing their improv play "Scrambled Eggs" for the annual meeting at the library. We are closing out a great year with many new faces and these kids were amazing!!
Thank you to Ms. Alex Alley for helping us organize our book club exploring the depths of "Wonder" by R. J. Palacio. I have thoroughly enjoyed our group of dedicated Jr Friends this year, and can’t wait for next year.
Jr Friends is for children ages 10-12 (4th-6th grade).
Planning for ALLen Reads 2014-15 will begin at our March meeting, 7 PM, Monday, March 10.
