May We See You Soon? Dive into Summer with Deep Blue Readers

DBR_SummerSchedBringing you important news about the Deep Blue Readers Summer schedule — what we’re reading, when we’re meeting, and where to find us!

“What about May?” you say. Our usual 4th Sunday charts a course around the Memorial Day holiday, weighing anchor for our May meeting on Sunday, June 1 @ 1:30. May is Reader’s Choice month, which means you decide what to read from the Middle Grades shelf and share your review! Let us know if you found buried treasure or caught an old fish. *yuck!*

Reader Choice is the perfect time to plug in if you’re new to Deep Blue Readers and the perfect way to start the Summer with a bunch of excellent books recommended by the super awesome divers on our team.

“When are the Summer Dives?” Download (.pdf), print, email and share the Deep Blue Readers Summer Dives with friends. DBR meets from 1:30 – 2:30pm at Valley Bookseller in downtown Stillwater. Newcomers always welcome!

Remember that you can check the Dive Log any time if you are ready to dive ahead into our next book.
