New middle school book club at the Rockland Public Library

Event has passed

    On Wednesday, Sept 21, from 1 to 2 p.m, students in grade four through eight are invited to join Miss Katie for popcorn and book chats about their favorite books. 

    This new book club will be meeting monthly to discuss great (and terrible) books that participants are reading. This club will be centered around the Maine Student Book Award (MSBA) list: https://sites.google.com/view/mainestudentbookaward/home. Students will get a chance to read any book they would like off the list each month. And the end of the year, they will all vote for their 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.  

    At the first meeting, there will be a general discussion about the best books read recently. 

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

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