Book Club

The next meeting of the State Library's book club will be held:

Date: Thursday, June 6, 2019
Time: 12 Noon to 1pm
Location: Keystone Building, Keystone Conference Center, Open Meadow Room
The Book: Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

Avery Stafford seems to have it all: a successful career as a federal prosecutor, a handsome fiancé, and a lavish wedding on the horizon. But when Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, a chance encounter leaves her with uncomfortable questions and compels her to take a journey through her family’s long-hidden history, on a path that will ultimately lead either to devastation or to redemption.

Based on one of America’s most notorious real-life scandals—in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country.

This is a new meeting place for us with the relocation of the State Library’s services to the Keystone Building for the next few years. When you enter the Keystone Building from North St. Go up the steps into the Atrium and turn right into the first hallway. The center is on the right-hand side. Come into the Conference center and you will see where we are set up.

Commonwealth employees can also use EZBorrow through the State Library's website to have it delivered right to the State Library.
