No Shelf Control is a discussion group for students in Grades 4-6 who love to read and have fun talking about books and characters! Tonight, as part of the Montgomery County Public Libraries’ celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we'll be discussing Sangu Mandanna's “Kiki Kallira Breaks a Kingdom,” the first in a series about a new heroine. You can borrow a copy (with a specially prepared reading guide just for our group) from the Connie Morella Library; just ask at the Check Out or Information Desks for the May book for No Shelf Control. You can also access the book as an e-book or audiobook on Libby/Overdrive (it is not currently available in any format through Hoopla). If you get an e-version, please contact Mr. Jeff for the reading guide (jeffrey.coster@montgomerycountymd.gov). Even if you are not able to finish the reading, please come anyway and see if No Shelf Control might just be the place for you! The book for the June 12 meeting (the final one for the 2023-2024 school year) will be handed out tonight, and then available to pick up from the Connie Morella Library by anyone who missed it.

Library Program Attendance (both virtual and in the branch) is limited to participants within the suggested age range of the program. Children attending an MCPL program under the age of 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Adults attending a program intended for children must have an accompanying child.
