Swanton Public Library offering kids book clubs in Feb

The Swanton Public Library has announced the options for book club and storytimes in January.

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 “Goldy Luck and the Three Pandas” by Natasha Yim. The book for grades 3-5 is “Sideways Stories from Wayside School” by Louis Sachar.

The book for grades 5-8 is “Tracker” by Gary Paulsen. The book for grades 9-12 is “Riot” by Walter Dean Myers.

They will also have a post for each book on https://www.splyouth.org for anyone who wants to discuss the book.

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 Feb. 7-19, the book is “Never Play Music Right Next to the Zoo” by John Lithgow. From Feb. 22 to March 5 the book is “Biscuit” by Alyssa Satin Capucilli.

Also, the Coding Club meets Mondays and Fridays at the library from 4-5:15 p.m. Dates are Feb. 4, 7, 11, 18, 25, and 28.
