After School Book Club Opportunity

Our LC Afterschool Book Club sponsors 4 books a year. Each book is a stand-alone meeting and students can choose to participate in 1 or all the titles. The first book is The Last Kids on Earth by Max Brallier. The meeting will be 10/22 from 12:50-1:45. Parents need to pick up their child at 1:45.

Students can sign-up on the LC library Canvas page.

The students who sign-up get a copy of the book to read, we meet and discuss the book, have an activity, sometimes meet the author, and give away read-alike books. The books are theirs to keep. This is a grant program sponsored by SEF.
