The Evening Book Club will be meeting at the library to discuss “The Lake House” by Kate Morton on Tuesday, July 25 at 6:30 pm. In this gripping tale, a missing child, a mysterious house, and a family secret that spans decades come together to create an atmospheric and suspenseful story.

The Senior Center Book Club will be meeting at the Golay Senior Center on Wednesday, July 26 at 1:00 pm to discuss “The Giver of Stars” by Jojo Moyes. Set in Depression-era America, this heartwarming novel follows a group of extraordinary women who travel through the mountains of Kentucky, delivering books to those who need them. “The Giver of Stars” is a tale of friendship, resilience, and the transformative power of literature. Come and share your thoughts on this inspiring story.

Other July Events
Switch it Up Gaming Club meets on Wednesdays July 5, 12, 19, and 26 at 4:00 pm. Tweens and teens are invited to participate in multi-player games like Mario Cart, Minecraft, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate on the library’s Nintendo Switch. Participating in multi-player video games with other players in the same room instead of virtually helps develop social skills and teamwork skills. The library’s Nintendo Switch was a gift from the Friends of the Cambridge City Public Library.
