JASPER — Patrick Smith’s “A Land Remembered” has been ranked Florida’s best book eight times in annual polls by the Florida Monthly Magazine.
The best-selling novel, which tells the story of three generations of the MacIveys — from dirt-poor Cracker life to the wealth and standing of real estate tycoons — will be the May selection for the Jasper Public Library’s Book Club. The club will meet May 20 at 6 p.m. to discuss the book.
On May 16 and May 21, from 3:30-4:30 p.m., Dash and Dot will be at the library as part of Makerspace. Dash and Dot are robots that can sense, act and think. Materials may be added to the robots, such as legos, tape, cardboard, to transform them. Designed for children, ages 8-12, Dash and Dot engage with the children and deliver lessons in logical progression and problem solving.
The Jasper Library offers a pre-K children’s program every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and children’s fun time activities every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
Adult coloring is available daily during the library’s hours to offer a chance for relaxation.
The Quilting Friends meet Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon at the library.
The library will be closed May 27 for Memorial Day.
