Bookin’ It @the Drake

Check out a copy of The Library Book by Susan Orlean and come along to our small group discussion. You will not only learn about the Los Angeles Public Library fire of 1986, but you will also learn some amazing things about libraries AND make new friends at the same time on Thursday January 9th from 7 to 8 pm. The group meets on the 2nd Thursday every other month in the Story Room.
