Spring Story-time: Every Tuesday @ MCPL; Every Thursday @ RRPL
The Martin County Public Library offers Spring Story-time Preschool every Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. The Rufus Reed Public Library offers Spring Story-time Preschool every Thursday at 11:00 a.m. We will have fun while learning early literacy skills. Each week, we will learn about a letter of the alphabet, the letter of the week. We will begin with the letter A and continue to the letter Z. We learn how to write the letter, the sound the letter makes, read books that begin with the letter, and make a craft about the letter, such as apple, bus, etc. These beginning early literacy skills help a child prepare for school and a lifetime of reading and learning.
In addition, the Martin County Public Library and the Rufus Reed Public Library offers a Story-time After School for school age children each week at 4:30 p.m. every Tuesday at Inez and every Thursday at Lovely. We will use the computer to read Tumble Books and we will play a game, such as Bingo. The use of Tumble Books enhance a child's reading skills and many of the books are on the Accelerated Reading List, which helps them in school.
Come and join us for all the fun and learning at Story-time!

Adult Book Club at Rufus Reed Library
Current Book Club Selection
The Ride of Our Lives is the humorous yet deeply moving account of NBC journalist Mike Leonard’s cross-country odyssey with his eccentric parents, three grown children, and a daughter-in-law. Full of ups and downs, laughs and tears, the month-long journey becomes a much larger tale of hope, persistence, and valuable lessons learned along the way. A celebration of the ties between parents and children, as well as the unforgettable community of people one can meet across America, The Ride of Our Lives is an inspiring narrative of self-discovery and self-fulfillment–and how one unique family found blessings and simple pleasures on the road called life.
