A book club for kids and their grown-ups!

Discuss great books with other readers! 

In August, create a diorama showing off a book you love. Work together as a family or make one on your own. Maybe your favorite is one we read together or another. We'll show and tell about our dioramas at the August Bookworms meeting and we'll have them on display in Children's Room through September 4.  

In September, we'll read Babymouse: Mad Scientist by Jennifer Holm. In October, we'll read Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson, and in November we'll read The Earth Dragon Awakes: The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906.

Books available for participants the first of the month preceding the meeting.
