Pick up a copy of the book at the library, read it and attend a workshop on Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the book. The book is the first of the Hunger Games trilogy written by Suzanne Collins.

But that isn’t the only story Liz Kostandinu, the library’s children’s programming coordinator, likes to share. She’s also happy to tell about how the 18-year-old volunteer—the only young volunteer to help out at the library year-round—stepped in to help with story time during its summer reading program.
