SPL announces April virtual book clubs

The Swanton Public Library is continuing virtual do-it-at-home book clubs for youth of all ages.

There are four age categories: grades K-3, grades 3-5, grades 5-8, and grades 9-12. There’s some overlap so readers can choose which book they’d prefer to read.

Every book will come with a blank review form, a few questions you can think about, and a few small activities or crafts that tie into the book. All we ask is that you read the book: do as much or as little of the rest of it as you want! Visit the library to pick up your free book and packet, either in person or via curbside service.

There will also be a post for each book on https://www.splyouth.org for anyone who wants to discuss the book or comment on any of the questions or activities. Included review sheets can also be filled out. Anyone who posts or brings back anything included with the book will also get a small prize at the library.

The books are: “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” by Judith Viorst for grades K-3, “Phoebe and her Unicorn” by Dana Simpson for grades 3-5, “Refugee” by Alan Grants for grades 5-8, and “It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah for grades 9-12.
