Family Book Club

Reading together = Spending time together

Books help us understand the world around us. They teach us empathy and acceptance. They teach us facts and skills. They teach us that a pig can be terrific, radiant and humble and that a princess is perfectly capable of being the hero. At the library our goal is to help kids find these books, but—more importantly—to spark a love of learning at an early age. By pairing stories and songs with warm memories and—of course—fun, any child can become a life-long learner. Family Book Club is a great opportunity to read together as a family and have a common interest to discuss.

This club is designed for children in 1st or 2nd grade and their parents. Our Family Book Club encourages family read-aloud time at home, and then brings everyone together at the library to talk about the book and do an activity inspired by the story. Each month’s book will be available for checkout at the circulation desk. This group is led by Librarian for Kids & Teens, Mary Beth Schwartzwalder and was started in January 2019.
