The group is reading: The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
In 1947, during the chaotic aftermath of World War II, American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She's also nursing a desperate hope that her beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive. So when Charlie's parents banish her to Europe to have her "little problem" taken care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London, determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister. 1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner burns to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. Sent into enemy-occupied France, she's trained by the mesmerizing Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of secret agents right under the enemy's nose. Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the truth... no matter where it leads

All members are welcome to attend meetings and contribute ideas. All meetings are held at the Main Library of Riverside Regional located at 1997 E. Jackson Blvd. in Jackson. All money raised is used at the Jackson Branch of Riverside Regional Library.
The Friends are a group of volunteers who promote the public library through fund-raisers. Money earned goes for programs, equipment, books, videos, furniture, or other things the library needs and can't afford to purchase. Being a Friend is a great way to meet other people who are interested in books and the library, to bring public attention to all the materials and services the library has to offer, to encourage and receive gifts, endowments and bequests to the library, and to raise funds to provide special programs for kids, teens, adults, and seniors at the library. If you are not yet a member of the Jackson Friends at the Riverside Regional Library, why not join? Help us make our library GREAT!!!
The Friends have been busy bringing extra support and help for the library.
The other branches of the Riverside Regional Library have organized or are working on plans to organize Friends groups. We look forward to working with them. However, remember that the money the Jackson Friends make will still be used at the Jackson Branch.
Don’t forget that the library often has need of volunteers to help with extra jobs around the library. Some may be short-term but others can be ongoing. Just ask one of the librarians for more information.
