Sponsored by the Friends of IPPL.
In honor of acclaimed author A.S. King’s visit on Nov. 10, the library will be giving away free copies of her books. The catch: once
you read it, you have to pass it on to friends, family, or a complete stranger. Pick up your free copy on Tues., Sept. 1, 3:30–6:30 p.m. in the Teen Lounge (while supplies last).
