Join the On the Same Page Book Club Today!
Join us at the Potomac Branch for the On the Same Page Book Club, a partnership with the Dover Public Library in Dover, Delaware. It is a mix of a traditional book club and an online book club for children and teens. There are three different age groups divided by grade level, they are:
Group 1 - Grades 3-5 will be reading Roald Dahl's Matilda
Group 2 - Grades 5-8 will be reading Lois Lowry's The Giver
Group 3 - Grades 9-12 will be reading Annette Curtis Klause's Blood and Chocolate
The participants will be able to discuss the books online on a secure wiki that we have created. For those of you familiar with Goodreads.com, the wiki is set up very much like one of their online book clubs. Each book has been divided up into sections so that the participants do not have to finish reading the whole book before they start joining in the conversation. On the last Saturday of each month Charles County participants will meet at the Potomac Branch to have a video chat with the kids in Dover. Midway through the month we will post a poll on the group wiki letting the participants in each group vote for which book we will read the next month. If you have questions or are interested in registering please call Sarah Anderson at 301-375-7375.
