Let's make time to read for fun. Each month, Club members read a new book and get together: to talk about books, meet kids from other schools, have snacks and explore fresh ideas. And you'll be building your own home library - we'll provide a book for you to take home. Aimed at ages 9-12, but all welcome.

This group reads a wide variety of books.
