Story Club for kids, and parents, too… (grades K-2) | 4th Mon. of each month @ 6:30pm
Our newest book club is designed especially for our primary school kids. Each month, we’ll send home one book with our families, to be read together. When we gather the next month, we’ll share another story or two on a similar theme, and then complete an activity that relates to the books we’re reading. In this way, we’ll be able to introduce some fairly complex stories, spark some wonderful discussions, have a little snack and a lot of fun!
Families Read Together for parents and kids (grades 3-4) | 2nd Wed. of each month @ 6:30 pmFamilies Read Together is a club for older elementary kids and their parents. Each month, we send home a chapter book for both parents and children to read (either together, or each on their own). When we get together the next month, we discuss the book, do a book-related activity, and share a snack. We select books from a wide variety of genres, and we always have some great discussions and lots of fun!
The Great Stone Face Club (grades 5-6) | 1st Wed. of each month @ 6:30pm
Popcorn & Oreo-Eating Monsters Club (P.O.E.M.) (gr. 7-9) | 3rd Wed. of each month @ 6:30pmThis is our club for older middle-schoolers. It’s a time for free-wheeling discussion of the books we love to read. We review the books we’ve been enjoying, suggest books for each other, and, of course, we snack! From time to time, we decide to read the same book at the same time, and discuss that, or to see a film based on a book, and discuss that. Whatever we do, it’s always fun!
Tuesday afternoons from 3:00 - 4:30pm | Sep.20, 27, Oct. 4, 11, 18, 25

Read to Brook!
If your child struggles with reading, or is hesitant to read aloud, bring him or her to the library and let Brook help.
Brook and Monica (her person!) are members of Therapy Dogs International, and are trained to work as Tail-waggin' Tutors with children.
They'll listen to your child read and help to develop their reading confidence.
