Book Chat & Advisory Group
Eastchester Public Library, Wednesday, February 10 at 7pm
For Grades 4 and 5. This program is drop-off. Online pre-registration is suggested.
This is a program aimed at avid readers, and will be in a "book talk" format. The librarian will start out by highlighting a book that he has enjoyed, and participants will be asked to bring in their own titles (1 or 2 each) to share. Participants will be reminded that the goal is to get their friends to want to read the book, so they shouldn't give away the ending!
Time will be set aside at the end of the program for "advisory," meaning the participants can offer their feedback as to what type of books they would like the library to have more of. Refreshments will be served. (added from Eventkeeper)
