The 7th-9th Grade Book Group will be meeting Thursday, March 4th from 3:30-4:15 p.m. to discuss Down the Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams. Snacks will be served and new members are always welcome. Books are available in advance at the Peace Dale Library. Stop in or call the library at 789-1555 for more information.
Students in grades 5 and up are invited to join us on February 18th from 2:30-4:30 p.m. for Live Action Percy Jackson Monopoly. Play the classic board game with a new twist…you are the token traveling on a room sized board and instead of buying Boardwalk you can buy Mount Olympus!
Registration is required for this event! Call 789-1555 for more information or to register!
Need Volunteer Hours? Like Kids and Books? Join the Book Buddies!
Sign ups have begun for the fall session of the Book Buddies at the Peace Dale Public Library. Beginning on February 5th at 4 p.m., the program will run consecutive Fridays through March 12th. This is a great way for students in grades 6 and up to earn community service hours.
Each week Teen Readers in grades 6 and up will meet with 3-8 year old Little Book Buddies. One on one reading is ideal, but no more than 2 Little Buddies will be assigned to a teen reader. The first 30 minutes are dedicated to reading, book selection or coloring will follow if so desired.
This is a joint program supervised by the Teen Librarian and the Children’s Librarian. Registration and a six week commitment to the program is required; register by stopping in or calling the library at 789-1555.
