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.
|The Night Owl Book Club - 3rd and 4th graders
Meets the second Monday of each month. 7:00 p.m.
Each month a new title is selected and made available at the Main Library Children's Room. Children read the book and then discuss it together. (This program does not meet June through September.)
|The Night Owls do not meet during the summer but incoming 5th graders are welcome to join the Phoenix Book Club from June on.|
|The Phoenix Book Club - 5th through 8th graders
Meets the second Tuesday of each month. 7:00 p.m.
Each month a new theme or genre is selected. Children choose their own books from a prepared list and share their thoughts on the book they read and the theme or genre. In the summer specific titles are discussed.
|June:||Tuesday, 6/10, 7:00 p.m.
The nationwide summer reading theme for 2014 is science! Get a head start on your summer reading by picking out a book with science at its core. It could be science fact, historical fiction about scientific discovery or science fiction. Pick a science themed fiction or nonfiction book from the selections behind the desk in the Children's Room and join us for our annual end-of-school/beginning-of-summer pizza party. Soon-to-be 5th graders from the Night Owls book club are welcome to join us and introduce themselves. Please let us know if you will be attending so we will have enough pizza for all.
|July:||Wednesday, 7/9, 7:00 p.m. - AT THE WOLLASTON BRANCH
Title: Ungifted by Gordon Korman
Troublemaker Donovan Curtis pulls a prank that might have meant big trouble. Fortunately for him, his name on the wrong piece of paper lands him in a new school for gifted students instead of in detention. But Donovan isn't gifted in anything but mischief. Can he find a way to make a fresh start with his new school's robotics team without getting back into the trouble he's trying to get away from? Read the book then come talk about it with us while playing around with some LEGO. Over the summer we'll be meeting at the Wollaston Branch on Wednesday evenings due to the other programs running at the Main Library. Copies of the book can be picked up at the Main Library or at Wollaston.
