Books @rmclib

Want to take a hike on the Pacific Crest Trail? Cheryl Strayed did and wrote the book "Wild" about her adventure. The library has multiple copies of the book available for check out (POP PS3619.T744 W5 2012) and a copy of the movie, starring Reese Witherspoon, on DVD (DVD WIL). A great way to spend part of your staycation! After you've read the book, meet in the library on Monday, February 8 at 2p to take part in a book discussion led by Library Director, Nancy Falciani-White. Hope to see you then!
