Construction Alert

Construction alert:  Jefferson Street is going to be resurfaced, meaning that the library’s parking lot will be temporarily inaccessible from that direction.  Work is tentatively set to begin on Friday, October 10.  During this time, library patrons may still access the library’s parking lot via Pacific Street.  Please drive carefully and thank you for your patience during this project.

Haiku Reviews - Our Reading Clubs Get Creative!

This week members of our two new reading clubs got creative at the library!  Readers wrote fun haiku reviews in order to book talk their selection for this month.  Unlike traditional book clubs, there are no assigned books.  Readers choose any book they'd like for that month and share their reading experience with the rest of the group - what they loved, what they didn't like, what they'd change, etc.  Shy?  No worries!  Prompts are provided each month to get the conversation flowing.  Bookin' It Up is our teen reading group for ages 13 & up and meets at the library on the fourth Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. during the summer.  Books N' Brew is the adult variation and meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at Downhill Coffee (3 Harris Street in Ripon).

Do you have a haiku review that you'd like to share? Email submissions to canovan@riponlibrary.org for review.
