SPL announces online book club, storytime kits


The Swanton Public Library has announced the options for book club and storytimes this summer.

The virtual book club is for grades K-12. There are four age categories.

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. Visit the library to pick up your free book and packet.

The book for grades K-3 is “Who Would Win? Ultimate Ocean Rumble” by Jerry Pallotta. The book for grades 3-5 is “The Magic School Bus: The Great Shark Escape” by Jennifer Johnston.

The book for grades 5-8 is “Escaping the Giant Wave” by Peg Kehret. The book for grades 9-12 is “The Girl from the Sea” by Molly Knox Ostertag.

They will also have a post for each book on www.splyouth.org for anyone who wants to discuss the book.

The library is also offering storytime kits for preschool aged children.

The activities included will be the color game played at storytime, a handout with rhymes and web links, coloring sheets, stickers, activity sheets, magnets, an instrument, and a craft.

For June, the book is “”How I Became a Pirate” by Melinda Long. For July, the book is “Over and Under the Pond” by Kate Messner.
