Do you have kids who love to read? Then Young Readers’ Fun club is the place for them!  The Lakewood Library has a discussion group just for kids.

The club meets once a month to discuss a great kid’s book, have refreshments and make a craft that’s related to the book.

This month’s book is,
The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity by Mac Barnett

Some of the upcoming books include
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly,
Brighty of the Grand Canyon by Marguerite Henry and
Navigating Early by Clare Vanderpool.

You can pick up a copy of the book at the library, read it, then come and let us know if you liked it or not and if you would recommend it to other kids.  Hang out and enjoy the activities, games and fun!

The group is “drop-in” which means, just come on in and join us.

There are lots of book discussion groups at the library for kids and adults.

Have you heard of the Lambda Literary Awards? For 25 years, the "Lammys" have celebrated the best in gay and lesbian literature. This year's Awards ceremony will be held in New York on June 2nd. There are a little over 20 award categories and more than 100 finalists nationwide.

It just so happens that 6 of this year's finalists live in the Denver area, so JCPL thought it would be neat to bring them in for a group reading for the public.

The Belmar Library is going to host the reading on Friday, May 10th, from 6:30-8pm. You'll get a chance to meet the authors, ask questions, get autographs, and hear some really great stories.

The readers and their nominated works are:

Jerry Wheeler - Strawberries and other Erotic Fruit

Kieran York - Appointment with a Smile 

Sean Eads - The Survivors

Dan Stone - Coming To: A Collection of Erotic and Other Epiphanies

Dylan Edwards - Transposes

Matt Kaily - Teeny Weenies: and Other Short Subjects
