About Bulldog Book Club

Bulldog Book Club is an opportunity for 4th and 5th grade students to read and discuss books selected from state and national award lists, as well as recently-released titles. The group is led by Mrs. Amy Oberts, Youth Librarian & Youth Services Coordinator for Towanda District Library.

During each meeting, participants discuss elements of the featured selection, engage in activities connected to the story, and share their reactions to the book. Bulldog Book Club is offered free of charge to registered 4th and 5th grade students. Visit our registration page to review the participation guidelines and procedures. Please contact Mrs. Oberts with questions and/or suggestions by calling Towanda District Library at (309) 728-2176 or via email .
