Visit Defiance Public Library Nov. 1 & Nov. 8 at 4:30 p.m. and/or Nov. 3 and Nov. 10 at 10:30 a.m. for Story Express: Children’s Book Club, geared to grades 1-6. Books will be available to check out before the events at the circulation desk. No registration required.
The beginning of the book club session will focus on a 1st and 2nd grade selection—The Fabled Stables: Willa the Wisp by Jonathan Auxier. The second portion of the session will be geared towards a 3rd to 6th grade selection—The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate.
The book titles will remain the same for both weeks, & while they are targeting different ages, all kids in grades 1-6 are welcome to join in both parts of each session. During the program, each book will have sections read aloud, followed by activities based on the readings. (While we will be able to read Willa the Wisp together in its entirety, it is recommended children check out their own copy of The One & Only Ivan in advance to read on their own because there will only be time to read sections of this together.)
