Young Adult Advisory Board at library is to meet Tuesday

November 27, 2003|By Fay Lande

The Glenwood library, 2350 Route 97, Cooksville, invites young people ages 11 to 17 to join its Young Adult Advisory Board meeting from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The board advises the library on books, music, programs, computer games and other activities that are interesting to young people. Next week's meeting will include a discussion of the library's movie collection, a movie trivia quiz and refreshments. The board meets once a month.

The Western Howard County Seniors Book Club will meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the library. The group, known for its lively discussions of contemporary fiction, will talk about Milk Glass Moon by Adriana Trigiani, the third book in the trilogy Big Stone Gap.

"The books are set in Virginia, in the mining section of Virginia, and we have a member of our book club who is from the exact town where this takes place," said library associate Emma Pope, who lives in Columbia. "We all teased each other and so we're going to have a field trip there."

The group originally met at Western Howard Senior Center. New members are welcome.

The library's Mother-Daughter Book Club: Fairy Tales & Legends will discuss The Magic Circle by Donna Jo Napoli, a retelling of the Hansel and Gretel story from the viewpoint of the witch, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Copies of the book are available at the library desk.

The club has four members and meets on the first Wednesday of each month. It offers an opportunity for mothers and daughters to spend time reading and talking together while enjoying new approaches to old stories. Rowanhood, by Nancy Springer, a book about Robin Hood's daughter, will be discussed in January.

"I thought this would be a very unique way of talking about the fairy tales that we grew up with," said Frederick resident Kris Buker, teen specialist at the library.

The library's Glenwood Parent-Child Book Club will not meet next month.

Registration is required for all of the programs.
