Virtual Bookworms (ages 9-12) [VIRTUAL—RSVP REQUIRED]
September 26 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min
A book club for 9-12-year-olds!
This month, we’re trying out a new book group for kids! The aim of this group is to create a space for strong readers to share books they’ve enjoyed, and to foster discussion among our community of young readers. Bring along your current or most recent fiction or nonfiction read in English to talk about with the group during our online meeting.
During the meeting, each child will be asked to:
- read the first line of the book they’ve selected
- briefly tell the rest of the group about the book (genre, favorite characters, setting…)
- tell the group whether they recommend the book and why
This book group is intended for children who read independently, although parents are welcome to join. Parents and caregivers who participate alongside their children will be expected to have read the novel with their children or to bring along their own children’s book to share and discuss.
This program requires advance registration, and is open to Library members. Click HERE to register. This program is free for Library members. Each child attending must have their own Library card, or be covered by a family membership. Registered participants will be sent a link to join the event via Zoom. Parents and caregivers are responsible for connecting to the meeting, and monitoring their children’s use of the internet.
