Book Clubs

Each month, the children's department hosts book club discussion groups for children in grades 1-8. Book club participants meet once a month to discuss a new book in a small group setting facilitated by a librarian. Participants of all ages are expected to have finished the assigned titles and be ready to participate in the discussions. Book Club books are available for checkout at the Main branch Children's Department (with library card) about one month prior to the meeting date. Please stop by  to reserve your spot. If you have questions call:  (510) 747-7705
