Swanton Public Library offering book clubs, coding

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 “Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg. The book for grades 3-5 is “The Tale of Despereaux” by Shannon and Katie DiCamillo.

The book for grades 5-8 is “When You Reach Me” by Rebecca Stead. The book for grades 9-12 is “We Hunt the Flame” by Caleb Hafsah Faizal.

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 Dec. 6-18, the book is “Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister. From Dec. 20 – Jan. 8 the book is “No More Noisy Nights” by Holly L. Niner.

Also, the Coding Club meets Mondays and Fridays at the library. Upcoming dates include Dec. 17 and Dec. 20 from 4-5:15 p.m.
