Youth Summer Reading Program 2020: Book Share

For students entering Grades K - 3!

Pop in on Zoom for some book recommendations! Miss Alyisha will share a few new or popular items from the Youth collection at the library. Come prepared to tell us about a book or series that you have enjoyed.

You’ll tell us the title & author, and then a few things you liked about the book (was it the characters? The action? The nice, relaxed pace of the story?). If you can, please have the book handy to show us all. You might want to grab a notepad to jot down good books you hear about, too!

If you participate in this program, you can enter the code READ on your READSquared dashboard to earn a program badge! (For more information on READSquared, visit our Youth Summer Reading Program 2020 page.)

To join in on the fun, please register in advance with this Zoom link:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
