Great Reads For Girls Mother/Daughter Book Club

Join us for lively discussions, activities, friendship and fun!

  • For girls ages 8-12 accompanied by mom or another caring adult.
  • No younger siblings please
    • Registration forms for the event and copies of the books will be available at the library front desk about one month prior to each event (registration is required).
  • No younger siblings please.
  • Participating in a book club can be a rewarding experience for parents and children. Sharing quality time with each other through reading provides the opportunity for parents to develop a true bond with their children by sharing ideas about the books’ contents and messages, while providing a safe environment for children to share thoughts, fears, or problems. They also have the opportunity to hear ideas and opinions of their peers.
