ABOUT THE LIBRARY

CHILDREN'S BOOK GROUPS

We are happy to offer book clubs during the school year for children in grades 1-2 and 3-4, thanks in part to support from a private grant. We offer a 1st and 2nd grade fiction book club, a 1st and 2nd grade non-fiction book club and a 3rd and 4th grade book club. Read on for more information. Read more below, or call 978-369-4898 and ask for Children's. You can also email Marty (mseneta@mvlc.org) for information.

GLEASON KIDS' BOOK CLUB: 1ST AND 2ND GRADE

The Gleason Public Library is happy to announce the return of the Gleason Kids Book Club, a children’s book club open to all first and second graders. Sign-ups begin Monday, September 29, and are accepted on a first come, first served basis. You can call 1-978-369-4898 or email Marty at mseneta@mvlc.org for any questions or to register.

The intention of the Gleason Kids Book Club is to bring a variety of books to children regardless of reading ability or level. If a child can read the assigned title on his own, he should be encouraged to do so. If a child is not quite ready or just prefers to be read to, parents and caregivers are encouraged to read with or to their children.

Upcoming meetings:

  • 1st-2nd grade nonfiction: Tuesday, November 4th, from 4 to 4:45 p.m.
  • 1st-2nd grade fiction: Thursday, November 13th, from 4 to 4:45 p.m.

Participants will be notified about the titles to read. Books will be on reserve at the library for check out.

CARLISLE BOOK CLUB: 3RD AND 4TH GRADE

If you have any questions about the book club or would like more information, please contact Tahleen Shamlian at tshamlian@mvlc.org or call 978-369-4898 and ask for the Children's Desk.
