Summer To-Do List~join a book club

Summer To-Do List: Join the Summer Reading Clubs @ Your Library!

It’s officially summer and libraries across the country have summer reading clubs, groups, ‘fests, and promotions. . Reading clubs are usually divided by age: (up to Grade 5), the Teen Reading Club (Grades 6-12), and the Adult Reading Club (Ages 18+) and by genre. There’s something for everyone this summer, and often you’ll have the chance to earn prizes for continuing to read during the summer break.

Not interested in dead tree reading? Go online and join a reading group. Goodreads has many, many, many engaging and welcoming reading clubs. I’ve blogged about the one I’m in and it is the best one!!

Don’t pass up on all of the great activities because, whatever you do, don’t be caught not being a part of our club!
