Kid's Book Group Reads Swindle for September 21st


Kid's Book Group Reads "Swindle" for September 21, 2016
Book Bunch starts a new year with Gordon Korman's Swindle, the story of a ragtag crew of oddballs on a mission to retrieve a rare baseball card from an unscrupulous dealer.  We invite children in grades 3-5 to meet at the library on Wednesday, September 21st at 4:00PM for a discussion of Swindle followed by a fun activity.

Books are available in the Young Readers' Room.

About the Book
After a mean collector named Swindle cons him out of his most valuable baseball card, Griffin Bing must put together a band of misfits to break into Swindle's compound and recapture the card. There are many things standing in their way -- a menacing guard dog, a high-tech security system, a very secret hiding place, and their inability to drive -- but Griffin and his team are going to get back what's rightfully his . . . even if hijinks ensue.

This is Gordon Korman at his crowd-pleasing best, perfect for readers who like to hoot, howl, and heist.


Bonus
Should your hard to please 3rd-5th grader thoroughly enjoy this book, there are an additional 7 books in the series!

Tween Book Group Reads Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children for September 8th


Tween Book Group Reads <"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" for September 8, 2016
Page Turner's selection for their September 8th meeting at 2:30PM is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children written by Ransom Riggs. Join this book group for tweens in grades 6-8 for a snack, discussion or the book and a short activity.

Copies of the book are available in both the Teen Area upstairs and the Young Readers' Room downstairs.

About the Book
A mysterious island.

 An abandoned orphanage.

 A strange collection of very curious photographs.



It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
