Chapter Chat is back with a little twist.
Children can pick up this month’s book with interactive elements that go along with the story. As you read, there are items in the bag that have page numbers on them. When you reach that page then you will open that item and use it along with the story!
October’s book is the Hiddenseek by Nate Cernosek.
A brother and sister are transported to a cursed world based on the game hide-and-seek, where they are pursued by a shape-shifting witch, the game never ends, and the only way to get home is to win.
Bags can be picked up at Aurora at the lower level desk and a Dillsboro. Meeting times are as follows:
October 25th @ APL – 4:30 pm
October 17th @ DPL – 3:30 (part of the afterschool program)
Snacks and Drinks will be provided. Ages 7 to 12 only.
We can’t wait to see you there!

So you love reading, but have no one to gush about books with… Look no further! The Aurora Public Library has the answer for you: The Chapter Chat Book Club at the Aurora Public Library, meeting every month to talk books with kids just like you.
In January, Chapter Chatters are reading Drama by Raina Telgemeier! This story follows Callie, a theatre fan who wants to put on the best production her middle school has ever seen, but drama on and off-stage creates chaos aplenty.
Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school’s production of Moon over Mississippi, she can’t really sing. Instead she’s the set designer for the drama department’s stage crew, and this year she’s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget.
But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen.
And when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!
We are meeting in February at the Dillsboro Public Library on February 11th at 10:30 am and at Aurora Public Library on February 15th at 4:00 pm. Snacks, drinks, and fun, themed activities will be provided.
Registration is recommended for everyone ages 9 and up! You can pick up your book at either location. We look forward to seeing you there!
