Too old for storytime? Join us for a book club!
We offer two monthly book clubs for children in grades 3 through 8. Registration is preferred but not required. Please call 617-376-2411 to ask about the upcoming meetings. Our children's book clubs are sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers!

Meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

Theme: Award Winners 
Each year the American Library Association gives out many different awards to authors and illustrators. The most well-known children's literature awards are the Newbery and Caldecott medals, but those aren't the only ones. This month we'll be reading books that have won the Newbery, Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Batchelder, Sibert, Schneider, and Belpré awards in the past several years. Pick an award winner and decide for yourself if you think it deserved to win.

Meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Wollaston Branch Library

January: 1/18 - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone 
February: 2/15 - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
