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 - NEW DAY!
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.)
|June:||Thursday, 6/9 - 7:00 p.m.
Night Owls will continue into July and take a break in August. For June we'll have open choice. What have you been reading? What books would you like to recommend to your friends? Looking for some good summer reads? Join us to share your favorites and find some new titles to read over the summer. 2nd graders who will be entering 3rd grade in September are welcome to join the Night Owls Book Club in June and July. We can't wait to meet you!
|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.
|June:||Tuesday, 6/14 - 7 p.m.
Theme: Sports & Athletics
This year's summer reading theme is On Your Mark, Get Set, Read! So to get ready for a summer full of sports and athletics we're reading sports and athletics themed books. Feel free to get creative with this one! Sports doesn't just mean baseball, basketball, football or hockey. Pick one of those, or maybe soccer, swimming, skating, running, fencing, hiking, rafting, surfing, even Quidditch. 4th graders who will be entering 5th grade in September 2016 are welcome to join the Phoenix Book Club in June and through the coming summer. We can't wait to meet you!
