This Just In!: Our New-Books Book Club Returns
I have news. Good news! It's almost time for another year of This Just In!, our new-books book club for Grades 4-6. It meets one Monday night a month (September-April) at 6:30 p.m. Read any book you want that has been published in the last six months, then bring it to the meeting. We'll do a quick discussion of each person's book then make commercials to share with the rest of the reading world! Sometimes these commercials involve photography and video, sometimes they are more craft based. We like to mix it up. We will always post our booklists and commercials to this blog after each meeting. Registration is required because we have to keep the group small. You can register online by clicking on the blue date. You can also register by phone at 444-7830.
We have an entire section dedicated to new juvenile fiction books! Simply follow the stars through the Kid Zone. Before the starred carpeting takes a left-hand turn down the hallway, you'll see a bookcase on your right. The books have pink stickers on their spine label. Remember, when looking for new books, THINK PINK!
