In celebration of Día de los Libros/Día de los Niños, we are hosting a unique Family Book Club program series at the Lancaster Public Library. Each book club meeting is open to families and people of all ages and is meant to celebrate our multicultural city. We will read three different books at each program, exploring different cultures and kinds of food. After reading, we will prepare and sample foods from each of the highlighted cultures. Families will be sent home with books of their very own. These book clubs are made possible through a grant from ALSC and partnership with Dollar General.
