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 are ongoing, and are accepted on a first come, first served basis. You can call 1-978-369-4898 or email Marty (mseneta@mvlc.org).

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, April 1, from 4 to 4:45 p.m. Volcano Rising
  • 1st-2nd grade fiction: Thursday, April 10, from 4 to 4:45 p.m. Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things
  • 1st-2nd grade nonfiction: Tuesday, May 6, from 4 to 4:45 p.m. Sandy's Circus: A Story about Alexander Calder
  • 1st-2nd grade fiction: Thursday, May 22 (new date), from 4 to 4:45 p.m. Gooney Bird Greene

Books are on reserve at the library for check out; please contact Marty to register.

If you have questions about the book club or would like more information, contact Marty at mseneta@mvlc.org or call the library at 1-978-369-4898 and ask for Children's.
