GREEN COVE SPRINGS – The next general meeting of the Friends of the Green Cove Springs Library will be at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 26, in the downstairs meeting room at The Pub, 3616 Magnolia Point Blvd., at Magnolia Point. When you’re coming through the main gate at Magnolia Point, tell the security guard that you’re attending the library meeting.
All interested parties are invited, and we’re looking for new members with new ideas. You’re also invited to try out The Cove Book Club, which next meets at 10:30 a.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in the library at the Senior Center, 604 Walnut St.
February’s book is “The Bookish Life” of Nina Hill by Abbi Waman. March’s choice is “The Everglades: River of Grass” by Marjorie Stoneman Douglas; for April, it’s “The Keeper of Hidden Books” by Madeline Martin; and May’s selection is “Heartland” by Sarah Smarsh.
If you love to read and discuss books, check out The Cove Book Club. Booklovers will also want to check out the great sale the next time they’re at the library. You can buy four books at the left of the front door for $1. These are nice hardbacks in good condition, and some are relatively new releases.
The primary purpose of the Friends of the Green Cove Springs Library is to raise money for children’s programs. With that in mind, we’ve invited young adult author Chrissa-Jean Chappell to come to the library on Feb. 22 at 5 p.m.
Please join us and enjoy some pizza as Chrissa-Jean, a Florida Book Awards medalist, discusses her newest release, “Sun Don’t Shine,” taking you on a journey through the sun-soaked landscapes of Miami.
Free books will be available while they last – one for each family – for autographing. The event is recommended for girls 16 or older.
