Kids' Book Club currently meets at the Town Hall. Please contact Mrs. Murphy at to join this group.


Kids' Book Club meets at 4:00pm on the first Wednesday of each month. Each month, members explore popular juvenile and preteen titles from various genres. We also learn about new releases and have fun with literature-based icebreaker games. Copies of our titles are available at the circulation desk for members and nonmembers. Mrs. Murphy also keeps a copy on her staff picks shelf. New members are welcomed year round. For ages 8-12
