MIddle School Reading Club

WHEN?  Tuesdays 11:30-12:30

May 21    May 28   June 4   June 11  

WHERE?   Howard County Public Library

 Summer Reading Club is a chance to meet with other readers and focus on  books.  We will meet and eat and have a chance to share thoughts on books in lots of different ways.

You can talk about a book, make a poster about a book, dress like a character in a book, act out something from a book, bring a song to share that reflects a book or just discuss a book with other readers.

Summer is a great time to read!  The library has both the latest books and the timeless classics!  You get to pick the books you read. It is all about sharing the books you love.

We will have our own meeting room at the library.   We won’t have to be quiet. We can eat and talk and listen to music and be creative!  There will be treats and prizes!

You do not have to have a library card to participate, but you will need one to check out books.  If you do not have one, we will issue one to you.  You don’t have to have read a book by the first meeting, but it might be more fun if you have a book to discuss.

This will be our second summer.  We had a lot of fun last year and we are hoping to have more participants and even more fun this summer!  We hope you will join us!
