Nassau County Executive Laura Curran is excited to announce the launch of her book club for young readers, Laura’s Book Club. The book club will include monthly book suggestions for young adults and children. County Executive Curran will announce her book pick of the month on her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“My mission is for Laura’s Book Club to encourage young people to disconnect from technology, step away from the screens and enjoy a book,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran. “I also hope this program encourages residents to visit their public libraries and take advantage of the free services they offer beyond book rentals.”
County Executive Curran is also participating in the 2019 Nassau County Library Tour. The program encourages residents to visit as many of the 57 library branches in Nassau County as possible in the months of July and August. Each participant of the library tool receives a map to track their progress and can earn prizes along the way.
Public libraries offer free membership to residents which comes with services such as book and video rentals, workshops and seminars, access to online research databases and even discounted admission tickets to museums and attractions across New York.

Laura’s Book Club selection for August is Turtles All The Way Down by John Green.
