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

The Carlisle 3rd and 4th Grade Book Club will be returning this fall at the Gleason Public Library. Sign-ups will begin Monday, September 29, and are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will have our first meeting on Thursday, October 9, from 4-4:45 and we'll be discussing Bunnicula by James and Deborah Howe. Books will be available at the library's front desk to check out. 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.
