Join us for the inaugural Middle Grade Book Club (MGBC) Read-A-Thon edition!
This book group, for kids ages 8 to 12, is VERY similar to our summer book club, but this one is being held in conjunction with Mary Hogan Elementary School Read-A-Thon! Two fun, engaging books, with two book club meetings! One on a Tuesday and one on a Wednesday, details and dates/times below. Come to one or both!
Meetings are held in the bookstore, and a light snack will be served. Led by Jenny, a Vermont Book Shop bookseller. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or for more information. Book club books can be purchased at store (20% discount), but book purchase is not required.

Find Waldo Local
Where’s Waldo? In Middlebury, of course. Back by popular demand! Elusive book character creates summertime fun to support the shop local movement. This year, Ollie's Other Place will be the Find Waldo Local hub! Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Middlebury!” passport at Ollie's (13 Washington Street, right next to Middlebury Bagel & Deli) and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. See full details on the passport!
Reading Without Walls
To spread appreciation and understanding of others, Reading Without Walls challenges readers to:
- Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
- Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.
- Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun.

Young Adult Book Club (YABC) ? Please contact Jenny Lyons via EMAIL if you'd like to form a YABC! With interest, we could start a monthly book discussion group or do a summer program like MGBC. You can be a young adult or just enjoy reading young adult books. Let me know!
