Bookworms is a book club for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. We meet on the third Thursday of each month. We have snacks and discuss a different book each month. Free copies of the book to be discussed at the next meeting are handed out and are also available after the meeting.
For more information or registration, contact Angie Bayne, Children's Librarian, at 634-6064, ext. 253 or email@example.com.
