Summer Reading & Tween Book Club

Summer Reading at the Candor Library goes from July 8 - August 17, so find your library card and head over to check out what's on the shelves. Every week there's a new activity and small prize for readers. Reading participants are encouraged to fill out a ticket for each book they read - at the end of the program there's a drawing for gift certificates to Barnes & Noble bookstores.

There's a category for every reader:
  • Beginning Reader - 2nd Grade
  • 3rd Grade - 6th Grade
  • Teen through 12th Grade
All you need to do is drop by the library to pick up a Summer Reading log and some good books.
And for pre-schoolers looking for something to Dig Into - check out the backpacks. There's one with dinosaur books and activities, and another that features trucks and construction equipment.

 Tween Book Club

There's a Tween Book Club for rising 5th - 7th graders this summer. The first meeting is Wed. July 10, from 10 - 11:15 am. Join the group for a book discussion, activities and snacks. Pat Musa is advising the book club and has a lot of cool things planned.

The group has already started reading their first book,
Savvy by Ingrid Law. "Savvy" is that weird talent that you get when you turn 13 - like being able to create electricity, or churn up a hurricane.

How the Tween Book Club works: participants receive a copy of the book to read and then gather to share what they think about the book. There are two more gatherings scheduled for the summer, so if you want to participate, now's the time to contact the Library.
