Fall Programs

Fall Storytime, book clubs, and game days begin next month.

We'll kick off our fall Storytime sessions with this year's Michigan Reads! book, Woolbur by Leslie Helakowski.  The Michigan Reads! program highlights the importance of early literacy.  Each year, the Library of Michigan selects a picture book written by a Michigan author and encourages adults to read it to children during September and October.  At our Storytime sessions, children will hear this story and participate in related activities and crafts.  See the complete Storytime schedule and register here

Our elementary book clubs meet monthly.  Book Buddies (kindergartners through second graders) will listen to a story and participate in related activities each month.  In September, Book Buddies will hear the Michigan Reads! book Woolbur by Leslie Helakowski.  See the complete schedule and register here.

Bookworms (second and third graders) and Chapter Chatters (third through fifth graders) will read a book in advance of each program and then discuss the book and participate in a related activity or craft each month.  Bookworms and Chapter Chatters will each discuss their own favorite books in September.  Beginning with October's book clubs, Bookworms will all read the same beginning chapter book and Chapter Chatters will all read the same chapter book.  See the complete schedule and register here.

Children can play Wii games, board games, and cup stacking during our game days on September 26 and November 16.  See details here

Our fall program schedule is on our calendar.  If you use Google calendar, you can add events to your calendar from ours. 

We hope to see you in the library this fall.
