Join us for our Tween Book Club (grades 5 -8)!
For September's Book Club, we will be reading Echo Mountain by Lauren Wolk.
"After losing almost everything in the Great Depression, Ellie's family is forced to leave their home in town and start over in the untamed wilderness of nearby Echo Mountain. Ellie has found a welcome freedom, and a love of the natural world, in her new life on the mountain. But there is little joy after a terrible accident leaves her father in a coma. An accident unfairly blamed on Ellie.
Ellie is a girl who takes matters into her own hands, and determined to help her father she will make her way to the top of the mountain in search of the healing secrets of a woman known only as 'the hag.' But the hag, and the mountain, still have many untold stories left to reveal." —Summary
To register, visit the circulation desk, email Ms. Colleen at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at (401) 423-7280. We will be meeting outside. In the case of inclement weather, Book Club will move into the Sydney Wright Room.
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.
