One More Chapter Book Club
Recommended for independent readers age 8 through 12
Join Ms. Colleen & Miss Emma for our One More Chapter Book Club. We meet after-school, once-a-month, to discuss traditional, novel-style chapter books. Snacks and activity will be provided.
December's Book Club
We will be reading A Dragon Used to Live Here by Annette LeBlanc Cate. We will meet on Wednesday, December 14, at 3:15 p.m.
Noble children Thomas and Emily have always known their mother to be sensible, the lady of the castle—if anything, a bit boring. But then they discover Meg, a cranky scribe who lives in the castle basement, leading a quirky group of artists in producing party invitations and other missives for the nobles above. Meg claims that she was a friend of their mother's back when the two were kids—even before the dragon lived in the castle. Wait—a dragon? Not sure they can believe Meg's tales, the kids return again and again to hear the evolving, fantastical story of their mother's escapades (while putting their fussiest penmanship to work) and get caught up in a quest to reunite the onetime friends. (Summary)
Sign up below, visit the circulation desk, or email Ms. Colleen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be meeting in the youth section of the Clubhouse Library. Find us on the second floor of 245 Conanicus Avenue (Jamestown Golf Course).
For New Book Club Members
At each session, the kids vote on a book to read together for the next month. Then, Ms. Colleen orders enough copies of that book through the Ocean State Libraries consortium. You pick up the book at the library (usually a week after the last book club). Books are never due before Book Club. Please reach out with any questions.
