The Gnomes are Coming!

June 18th - August 16th

 

Gnomes are coming to the Granby Free Public Library as part of the Adult Summer Reading Program, "Summer Reading with my Gnomies!" 

  • Gnome Bingo: Kick off your summer reading by signing up for our Adult Summer Reading Program and receive your bingo sheet to earn raffle tickets to win weekly prizes. 
  • Guess the Name of the Book: Guess the correct title of the book based on our weekly clues. Correct answers earn a chance to win a Dunkin' gift card at the end of the summer. 
  • Bring Home a Gnome: The Friends of the Granby Library's summer fundraiser featuring cute fruity gnomes, handmade by our "In-Stitches" Knitting Group. Choose from gnome stuffies, gnome mug cozies and more! 

Book Group

Thursday, July 11th at 6pm

The Group will be reading The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth. Copies of the book are available at the library now! 

Joining a book group has great benefits.  You will be encouraged to read more, explore outside genres you normally read, and make new friends.  The Granby Library Book Group covers a wide range of genres which include both fiction and non-fiction titles.  Group members vote on titles they want to read a few months in advance.  The discussions are always very lively and entertaining.  Upcoming book titles are available at the library in different formats - regular print, large print, and audio.  

Upcoming Book Group Titles: 
July - The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth
August - The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell by Robert Dugoni
September - The Ragged Edge of Night by Olivia Hawker
