Fantasy books don’t always have to star dragons, aliens, or other imaginary creatures. Sometimes, the best fantasy books use the real world as their basis. July’s book selection for the Fantasy Book Club is The Toothpaste Millionaire, does just that!
Dates changed to the first and third Wednesday of every month
Our open mic nights are continuing this summer. Beginning in July, open mic nights will be held on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Participants can read poems, short stories, or even sing us a song! Our open mics are all ages. Not feeling inspired? Here are a few books to give you some ideas. Participants are also welcome to share original works.

We’re kicking off summer time at the Francis A. Gregory Library with the next meeting of our Fantasy Book Club. In June, we will be reading The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks. A young boy receives a plastic Native American action figure for his birthday, and with the help of a magical cupboard, the action figure becomes real in this exciting literary escapade!
