Are you a 3rd- 8th grader that is reading the 2017-2018 OBOB books? Then come to our weekly OBOB book club on Monday afternoons from 3:00-4:00 pm beginning in October 2017!
Emily West, a teacher and NP community member, will guide the book club as we brainstorm and discuss the characters and plot of many of the OBOB books. Each week, our group will create a story board that will then be displayed in the library for all of our North Plains Library kids to see. We hope that the story boards we create together, will encourage other kids to read these amazing books!

Wednesday, December 27, 2017 – The Perfect Horse – Elizabeth Letts
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Eighty-Dollar Champion, the remarkable true story of the valiant rescue of priceless pedigree horses in the last days of World War II.
As the Russians closed in on Hitler from the east and the Allies attacked from the west, American soldiers discovered a secret Nazi effort to engineer a master race of the finest purebred horses. With the support of U.S. general George S. Patton, a passionate equestrian, the Americans planned an audacious mission to kidnap these beautiful animals and smuggle them into safe territory—assisted by a daring Austrian colonel who was both a former Olympian and a trainer of the famous Lipizzaner stallions.
New patrons are always welcome to join our book discussions.

The North Plains Public Library reaffirms that we welcome and serve every member of our community. We remind everyone that public libraries are a refuge and a place of common ground. We welcome and include all people, and want every member of our community to feel safe and comfortable using our spaces and resources. We expect that library users will show each other the same respect.
As the American Library Association President, Julie Todaro, wrote, “Our nation’s libraries serve all community members, including people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, and the most vulnerable in our communities, offering services and educational resources that transform communities, open minds and promote inclusion and diversity.”
The libraries of Washington County encourage you to use our libraries for education, entertainment and enlightenment. We continue to welcome everyone into our libraries, our shared community gathering spaces.
