River Walk Book Club
Join us for a brand-new book club! The Riverwalk Book Club will meet at 10 AM on Saturday, June 10th, in front of the Mount Vernon City Library. Enjoy a themed book discussion as you walk along the beautiful Skagit River. Pick any book to read as long as it relates to this month's theme: "Fantasy."
READ HARDER BOOK CLUB
Join our Book Club! This club is meant to encourage readers to explore settings, characters, formats, genres, and perspectives that might be outside of their reading norms. This month's challenge is to read a book that’s been challenged recently in your school district/library OR read one of the most-challenged/banned books of the year by a queer and/or BIPOC author. Next meeting is Tuesday, June 13th at the Market Street Café at Haggen in Mount Vernon at 12pm.
