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.
|The Night Owl Book Club - 3rd and 4th graders
Meets the second Thursday of each month at 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.)
|March:||Thursday, 3/9 - 7:00 p.m.
Title: Justin Case: School, Drool and Other Daily Disasters
It's the start of the school year and nothing feels right to Justin. He didn't get the teacher he wanted and he's not in the same class as his best friend. Justin is very nervous about third grade And to top it off, he's lost his favorite stuffed animal, but he can't tell anyone, because technically he's too old to still have stuffed animals. Right?
|The Phoenix Book Club - 5th through 8th graders
Meets the second Tuesday of each month at 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.
|March:||Tuesday, 3/21 - 7:00 p.m.
Theme: World War II
We'll be delving into history and exploring the time period of World War II. We'll be reading both fiction and nonfiction for this meeting, so go ahead and pick something from either category or both. Keep in mind, the reason we call it World War II is because it truly spanned the globe, so books for this month take place all over the world. While this is going to be a heavier discussion than usual due to the serious nature of the subject, it's an important time in history and well worth reading about.
|The Harry Potter Book Club - All Ages (Kids, teens, adults!)
Meets the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Wollaston Branch Library
Join us as we read our way through the Harry Potter series, one book per month from January through July! Whether it's your first time reading the books or you have them all memorized, you're welcome to come talk about Harry Potter with us at the Wollaston Branch.
