Pollywogs: First and Second Grade Book Club

Registration for this program is now full. You may email brkyouth@minlib.net to add your child to the waiting list for this program. Even if your child does not get a spot in the program this session, by registering for the waiting list you are helping us gauge interest in this program for the future so we can adjust our program offerings to meet demand.

Hop to it and read! Our Pollywog’s book club is for 1st and 2nd graders. The group meets for 30 minutes twice a month on Tuesdays (with only one meeting in September) from 3 to 3:30 PM in the Rabbit Hole, on the ground floor of the Brookline Village Library. Each meeting will include a discussion of the book and an activity. 

Our meeting dates for the fall are: September 19, October 3, October 17, October 31, November 14, November 28 and December 12.

Books for meetings will be available for pickup at least two weeks in advance of each meeting at the Children’s Desk. When you pick up your book, you’ll receive a bookmark with prompts that you can fill out while you read to help you come to the meeting ready to discuss!

Our books are:

  • September 19: Swim, Mo, Swim by David Adler
  • October 3: Reina Ramos Works it Out by Emma Otheguy
  • October 17: Cornbread and Poppy at the Carnival by Matthew Cordell

October 31, November 14, November 28, and December 12: Books for these meetings will be voted on and chosen by members!

This program requires registration and has limited capacity. Please visit Eventbrite to register. By registering on Eventbrite, you are registering for all 7 sessions.  

Registering for this program indicates a commitment to attend the book club meetings. Please do not register for this program if your child will miss more than one meeting. If your child misses a second club meeting, their spot will be given to the next person on the waiting list. We understand that illness and emergencies occur – if an absence due to unforeseen circumstances is communicated to staff, it will not be considered a no-show.
