JASPER — The Jasper Public Library’s Book Clubs will be discussing works from John Grisham and Johnny Bullard in April.
Meeting at 6 p.m. April 22, the Book Club will be talking about Grisham’s “The Reckoning,” which takes readers from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II, according to the library’s release.
On April 25, the Book Club will meet at 11 a.m. to go over Bullard’s “Secrets.” The book, set in Seraph Springs in north central Florida, picks up where “Nightshade” left off and Bullard will have readers laughing, crying and fully immersed in the pain and joy of the characters.
On Thursday, April 4, the free SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program, offered by the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and the local Area Agency on Aging, will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon. During the program, trained volunteers can assist with Medicare, Medicaid and health insurance questions through one-on-one counseling and information.
Also in April, the library is hosting a physics workshop makerspace on April 11 and April 16 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. each day. The library makerspace is an area where patrons can create materials using resources such as computers, 3-D printers or traditional arts and crafts supplies and numerous other materials.
The Quilting Friends meet at the library on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon to share ideas in the art of quilting. Those attending should supply their own materials.
