The Valley Reads Book Club

The Santa Maria Public Library presents its monthly book club The Valley Reads on Tuesday, October 24th in Shepard Hall from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Each month a new book title is read and discussed. This month’s selection is Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.  Set in Sussex, England, this story is told from the perspective of an artist who returns home to attend a funeral. While there, he visits a farm where he spent time as a child, and recalls memories from his childhood long since forgotten.

To join The Valley Reads please come to the Santa Maria Public Library and sign-up with staff at the second-floor information desk.

The Valley Reads meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month in Shepard Hall from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Complimentary coffee and snacks will be served.

The Library’s hours are 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Library is closed on Sunday. The Library is located at 421 S. McClelland Street.

Questions may be directed to the reference desk, 925-0994 extension 8562.
