Teens and tweens interested in discussing fiction books can come to the teen zone on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 2-3:00. This month's pick is And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Currently, this is a very small group but we are hoping to build it so that we might be able to do some author visits, both virtual via SKYPE and in-person as well as book/movie nights (with pizza). Interested teens may pick up a copy of the book in the teen zone and may e-mail teen librarian Ellie Strbo at estrbo@mtpl.org.
