SPL offering kids book clubs

The Swanton Public Library has announced the options for book club and storytimes this month.

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 “The Bad Guys” by Aaron Blabey. The book for grades 3-5 is “Bunnicula” by Deborah and James Howe.

The book for grades 5-8 is “The House with a Clock In Its Walls” by John Bellairs. The book for grades 9-12 is “A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder” by Holly Jackson.

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 Oct. 4-16, the book is “Sylvester and the Magic Pebble” by William Steig. From Oct. 18-30 the book is “I Need My Monster” by Amanda Noll.

Also, the Coding Club meets Mondays and Fridays at the library. Up to five coders at a time can come in to learn some coding skills. Coding is open in October on every Monday and Wednesday from 4-5:15 p.m., except Oct. 29
