Book Clubs for Kids

Last year, I ended up joining three monthly book clubs. That ended up being a little too much to keep up with, so I ended up dropping out of one of them. For me, these book clubs are a great excuse to read more books published for adults. (As a Youth Services Librarian, reading books published for children and young adults takes up most of my dedicated reading time.) But it's not just adults that enjoy book clubs. Kids love them, too! Did you know that the Corvallis Library offers two book clubs for elementary school-aged kids? If you have older children who are learning to read or are independently reading chapter books, they might enjoy joining one of the library's book clubs for kids! These book clubs meet once a month and give kids a chance to discuss the book and participate in book-related activities.

My First Book Club

The book club for children who are very beginning readers. The book club titles are selected from the Early Reader Collection. Each program includes a discussion about the book, activities and other stories. A limited number of copies of each title will be available at the Youth Reference Desk. For further information, please contact the Youth Reference Desk at 541-766-6794.

Beginning Chapters Book Club

The Beginning Chapters Book Club is for kids who love to read and are reading beginning chapter books. This book club generally meets on the third Wednesday of each month. A limited number of copies of this month's books will be provided by the Library. For further information, please call 541-766-6794.
