Let’s read for fun! Club kids get together to talk about a new book, make new friends, enjoy snacks and explore fresh ideas. Bonus fun: build your own home library. Participants will get a free book while supplies last. Keep it if you like, give it to a friend and invite them to our Club, or return it for other Club kids to enjoy.
