Let's read for fun! Each month, Club kids get together to talk about a new book, meet kids from other schools, enjoy snacks and explore fresh ideas. Bonus fun: you'll build your own home library. We provide a free book to the first ten kids who arrive that day. 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. Best for ages 9-12, and all kids welcomed.
