Age: Adults


Parents of teens, tweens, and even children are invited to this discussion series sponsored by Normal Library, Bloomington Library, and BN Parents.

This group will meet quarterly, alternating library locations, and will focus on a different parenting book each time. However, if you don't have time to read the book, don't worry! Key points of each title will be provided beforehand.
