The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is open to all adults interested in getting together for informal discussion on selected books. Each month a book is chosen and copies are available here at the library and on the bookmobile for interested readers. The book club meets at the library on the last Monday evening of the month at 6:30 p.m. and the last Wednesday afternoon of the month at 1:30 p.m. to discuss the featured book. Coffee and treats are served along with engaging and enjoyable discussion. Copies of the book are available at the library and on the bookmobile. Everyone is welcome. If you can't make any of our meetings, post your comments and thoughts on our Book Club Blog.
The July book selection is Pay It Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde. Pay It Forward is a wondrous and moving story about Trevor McKinney, a twelve-year-old boy in a small California town who accepts the challenge that his teacher gives his class, a chance to earn extra credit by coming up with a plan to change the world for the better, and put that plan into action. The plan that Trevor comes up with is so simple, so naive, that when others learn of it they are dismissive. But will it work? In the end, Pay It Forward is the story of seemingly ordinary people made extraordinary by the simple faith of a child.
