This book club is for New City/West Nyack library members in grades K & 1. Each month, we will read a book during our meeting, make a craft related to the story and have a light snack. Mrs B will read aloud and participants will follow along in their copies of the book, which are provided at the session. Children should be registered monthly for those sessions convenient for your family. Noone is pressured to read aloud or ever put on the spot and books do not need to be read beforehand. The goal of this program is to engage children with books so they enjoy reading. Hope to see you there!
