Reading Roundup
William Jeanes Memorial Library, Tuesday, July 26 at 7:30pm
Children ages 4-8 are invited to join us for this buddy reading program! Children are paired one-on-one with teen volunteers for 45 minutes of reading together. The younger buddy chooses the books (from the library or brought from home) and either practices reading or enjoys being read to by their teen buddy. Either way, both buddies benefit! Space is limited and registration is required. Register below or by calling the library at 610-828-0441. Teens interested in volunteering to be a buddy can contact Sara Huff, Teen Librarian, at shuff@mclinc.org or by calling the library. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Roald Dahl's Matilda
Swarthmore Public Library, Thursday, July 28 at 4pm
Join us as we adventure through Roald Dahl's Matilda. Each week, Miss Devon will read aloud from the book while we all draw, write, play games, and act out scenes from the story. At the end of the series, we will watch the film version of this beloved children's novel.
This class is for 3rd - 5th graders. Registration is required.
More about the book: "Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!"
Roald Dahl'sMatilda won the Children's Book Award shortly after it was published in 1988, and it has continued to delight audiences ever since.
(The children in our previous session of afterschool book club suggested and unanimously chose this novel for our summer session!) (added from Eventkeeper)
