Virtual Family Book Club

Anne of Green Gables Book Cover

Hello library patrons! We’re going to try something new! An online family book club. We will hold the first live virtual meeting (via Zoom) of this book club on Thursday, June 4 at 6 pm. We’ll be reading Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, one of my all time favorite books! You can read whatever format of the book you can find.

The e-book version is available for free through Amazon’s Kindle:

and also through Biblioboard:

If you would like to join this virtual family book club, please email or just send a Facebook message to the library and I’ll share the Zoom meeting information with you! If you don’t wish to attend the virtual meeting, but would just like to read the book, feel free to do that, too! Accelerated Reader places this book at a 7.3 reading level, so families with younger kids might want to do this as a read-aloud. Happy reading, folks!

Quarantine Reading Challenge for kids

In order to encourage all of our young patrons to keep reading during their time off from school, Miss Gwen has created this super fun reading challenge! This challenge is for kids 0 to 5th Grade. Parents, if your kids aren’t reading on their own yet, read to them to complete the challenges. You’ll have fun too!

You can print this form or simply copy down the categories if you don’t have a printer. Complete the challenges and return it to the Library after we re-open for a special prize! NO LIBRARY CARD REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE!!!!
