Chickadees Book Club

Grades 1-2, adults must stay in the building
Main Library Children's Room
Returning in 2022 - Dates and times TBA
REGISTRATION REQUIRED

This book club for children in grades 1 and 2 works a little differently than our other book groups - It's a bit of a cross between a book group and a storytime. Where our book clubs for older readers meet once per month, the Chickadees meet weekly on the same schedule as our weekly storytimes. The group reads a book together, working through the book a bit each week and discussing what they have read.

Check our calendar for upcoming dates.

Phoenix Book Club

Grades 5-8
Main Library Children's Room
Second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.

This book club for children in grades 5 through 8 meets monthly. Instead of all reading a single title, children attending this book club can pick different titles from a different theme or genre each month. Themes and genres vary from month to month and a list of selections is provided to choose from, or children can propose a title that fits the theme. Discussions focus both on the individual titles read by each child, and on the overarching topic.
