Kids' Book Club Selections & Guides

The Friends of the Library have gathered books for early, middle and advanced readers for you to use in a kids' book club. All copies can be found in the children's section of the library.

 

Click on the book cover photos or links below to see the book club guide. Each guide is in PDF for easy printing and gives you a summary of the book to help you choose the best one for your group. The guide includes questions to ask and activities that you can choose from. It also identifies other resources in the library that can extend the learning on the topics from the story.
