The Short & Sweet program at the Kyova Branch (second Thursday at 6 p.m.) has some great selections coming up in 2014!

This is a fun and easy program to do … just pick up a copy of that month’s short literary selections at Kyova, or read them online, using the links posted here. At the program, join in a brief discussion of each selection, and then enjoy some sweets. We promise to wrap it up within an hour.

We call it a quick taste of literature for busy people.  New participants are always welcome!
