Pollywogs: 1st and 2nd Grade Book Club

Our meeting on March 14 has been cancelled due to weather. We will meet instead on March 21. 

THIS PROGRAM IS NOW FULL. You may register for the waitlist by visiting Eventbrite. There is also still space available in our Bullfrogs Graphic Novel Book Club which is open to kids in 1st through 4th grade. 

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 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 winter are: January 17, January 31, February 14, February 28, and March 14. 

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:

  • January 17: Astrid and Apollo and the Starry Campout
  • January 31: Sadiq and the Pet Problem
  • February 14: Franklin Endicott and the Third Key
  • February 28: TBD
  • March 14: TBD

This program requires registration and has limited capacity. Please visit Eventbrite to register. By registering on Eventbrite, you are registering for all 5 sessions.  Registration begins on Monday, December 19 at 6 PM.

At this time, we ask that you only register your child for one book club so that more children have the chance to participate. Our other book clubs are “Leapfrogs 3rd and 4th grade book club” and “Bullfrogs: graphic novel book club”

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.
