Keep your child reading this summer with a little extra motivation from the library’s book club! Every Tuesday, we will meet to share what we are reading, participate in activities that promote a love for reading, and distribute prizes for the total hours read. This program is differentiated for children ages 6-12 by having children read their own individual books that they keep track of in a reading log.
