Clubs, storytimes offered for kids at SPL

The Swanton Public Library has announced the options for book club and storytimes in August.

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 “Giggle Giggle Quack” by Doreen Cronin. The book for grades 3-5 is “The Big Wave” by Pearl S. Buck.

The book for grades 5-8 is “Jumbies” by Tracey Baptiste. The book for grades 9-12 is “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien.

They will also have a post for each book on 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.
