Children’s Book Groups

Book Clubs for Kids

Our book clubs offer a space for kids to get together, make friends, and discuss reading. Kids will have a chance to explore various genres to find out what excites them most and dive deeper into the stories and topics they love. Find the book group that fits your age and interest, then sign up on the Events Calendar for the next meeting.

To start off the fall, book club meetings will be held outside under the pavilion at the Milano Center. Times and dates might change later in the year as our space changes.

E-copies of some books may also be found on Libby.
