Monday, June 10, 3:30 – 5:00pm
Pop into the bookstore any time between 3:30 and 5:00 on Monday, June 10, to find out about summer reading programs offered by the bookstore and Ilsley Library. We'll have handouts and information, plus light refreshments. We also have a big pile of free books! These are paperback "advance reading copies" of books that are recently or not yet published.
Meet the Ilsley Public Library's staff member, Renee Ursitti! Renee has been a substitute on both our youth and adult desk for a year now and is very familiar with their summer reading program. She has also just been hired to fill our new Adult Services and Circulation position, so this is a great opportunity to welcome her to the community!
Are you between the ages of 8 and 12? Do you like to read? Then the Middle Grade Book Club may be for you! MGBC is a summer book club for kids ages 8-12. We meet three times in July and read fun, engaging books! We provide a list and you read the book prior to the meeting and come prepared to discuss. We'll eat fabulous Nino's pizza and talk about the book we just read. Book club meetings are held in the bookstore and guided by Jenny, a Vermont Book Shop bookseller. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. Book club books can be purchased at store (20% discount), but book purchase is not required.
