SPL offers storytime, book clubs

The Swanton Public Library is continuing book clubs, storytimes, and coding for kids.

The virtual book club is for grades K-12. There are four age categories.

Every book will come with a blank review form, a few questions you can think about, and a few small activities or crafts that tie into the book. Visit the library to pick up your free book and packet.

The book for grades K-3 is “Curious George” by H.A. Rey. The book for grades 3-5 is “Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM” by Robert C. O’Brien.

The book for grades 5-8 is “The Only and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate. The book for grades 9-12 is “The Beast Player” by Nahoko Uehashi.

The library is also offering storytime kits for preschool aged children.

Every month, they pick two picture books from the website Storyline Online to showcase and put together packets to take home. The books are read by famous people and celebrities and animated using the illustrations.

The activities included will be the color game played at storytime, a handout with rhymes and web links, coloring sheets, stickers, activity sheets, an instrument, and a craft.

For July 6-17, the book is The Night I Followed the Dog” by Nina Laden. From July 19-31 the book is “Harry the Dirty Dog” by Gene Zion.

Coding for grades K-12 is also in action at Swanton Public Library.
