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.)
|May:||Monday, 5/11 - 7:00 p.m.
Book: Say What by Margaret Peterson Haddix
|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.
|May:||Tuesday, 5/12 - 7:00 p.m.
Theme: Oversize - Picture books for older readers
Whether they're too long for younger readers or the subjects are a little deeper or harder or scarier, these books are picture books full of illustrations but they're meant to be read by older kids. In the Children's Room they have their own spot near the graphic novels. Browse through this often overlooked section and pick out a book or two.
|June:||Tuesday, 6/9 - 7:00 p.m.
Theme: Superheroes and Superpowers
Characters who can fly, use x-ray vision, talk to animals, turn invisible and more have super powers. Were they born with them or do they happen later? Is it magic or science? And do they use their powers for good or evil? Grab a book with a superpowered character (or more than one!) and join us to talk about it and get ready for this summer's theme: Every Hero Has a Story!
