Book clubs offer the opportunity to read just for the fun of reading and create a community young book lovers. Being in a book club teaches kids valuable skills, including how to participate in a discussion by taking turns and appreciating others’ opinions. Considering registering your child for one of our lively discussion groups!
At our monthly meeting, we read a book together, discuss the book, and participate in a craft or activity related to the book. Past reads include One Plastic Bag: Isatou Cesay and the Recycling Women of the Gambia by Miranda Paul and illustrated by Elizabeth Zunon, and Gingerbread Christmas written and illustrated by Jan Brett. Bookaneers meets the second Saturday of each month.
