New middle school book club forms at Rockland Public Library

Event has passed

    ROCKLAND — On Wednesday, Sept. 21, from 1 - 2 p.m., 4th - 8th graders are invited to join Miss Katie for popcorn and book chats about their favorite books. 

    “Welcome to a brand new book club!” said Rockland Public Library, in a news release. “We will be meeting monthly to discuss great (and terrible) books we are reading.”

    This club will be centered around the Maine Student Book Award (MSBA) list: https://sites.google.com/view/mainestudentbookaward/home. Kids will get a chance to read any book they would like off the list each month. And at the end of the year, the group will vote for a favorite and submit it to the state.

    Every April, Maine names its kids' choice award winner. Last year's winner was Primer by Jennifer Muro.  

    In the first meeting, the group will start by discussing the best books they’ve read recently.

    RSVP with Miss Katie at kdrago@rocklandmaine.gov if you are interested in attending this meeting or one in the future.

    The second meeting will be Wednesday, October 19, from 1-2 p.m.

    “Happy Reading, Everyone!” said RPL.
