Love to Talk About Books?

by: 
Jennifer, Lakewood Library

Are you or do you know a kid 10 years or older who just loves to talk about books? Well then, you just gotta check out the Young Readers' Fun Club at the Lakewood Library! Much like adult books clubs, this group creates a list of books they would like to read and then assigns each book a month. On the third Tuesday of each month at 4p.m. the club meets to talk about the book of the month. But wait, the fun doesn't stop there! During club meetings kids also have fun making crafts and enjoying yummy snacks. There is no registration to attend. Just come on in and join the fun. All kids 10 years and older are welcome. Below are some of the upcoming books the club will be discussing.

January 21: The Menagerie by Tui T. Sutherland

Hidden in the small town of Xanadu, Wyoming, there is a menagerie filled with mythical creatures like unicorns, dragons, and phoenixes. It's closely guarded. Tightly controlled. Top secret. And six griffin cubs have just escaped.

February 18: The Outcasts: Brotherband Chronicles by John Flanagan
