Several New Virtual and Distanced Programs Being Offered by Jensen Memorial Library

Book clubs for adults, teens, and middle schoolers, craft and STEM bags, virtual storytimes, and a storywalk are among the distanced and virtual programs being offered this fall by Jensen Memorial Library. 

Adults and teens are invited to participate in the new “DIY Book Club”. The club and its books are curated by Sourcebooks and made available by Baker & Taylor. Readers can borrow a copy of the month’s chosen book from the library. Each book comes with discussion guide, information on the live virtual author talk to take place at the end of the month, list of read-alike titles, and a guide to participating online. A new book will be available the first week of the month for the next several months. In October adults are invited to read Before She Was Helen by international bestselling author Caroline B. Cooney, while teens can delve into The Radium Girls by Kate Moore. Several physical copies of each book are available at the library, with additional access available through Overdrive, and an audiobook version available via CDs or Playaway for the teen book.
