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.

Nim lives on an island in the middle of the wide blue sea with her father, Jack, a marine iguana called Fred, a sea lion called Selkie, a turtle called Chica and a satellite dish for her e-mail. No one else in the world lives quite like Nim, and she wouldn’t swap places with anyone.  But when Jack disappears in his sailing boat, and disaster threatens her home, Nim must be braver than she’s ever been before.   And she needs help from her friends, old and new.
