Positive Self Talk is a big part of how we think and feel; and over time it can reduce stress and improve self-esteem.

Also on Friday at 3:30 p.m. the Riverbank Teen Book Club will get together and share the love of books. This month’s book selection is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. A limited number of copies are available for checkout at the library.
