Reading Programs for Kids!

THANKS to all the readers who signed up for and participated in our Middle Grade Book Club (MGBC)!

Our last book club meeting (Wednesday, July 25 Just Like Jackie, with special guest Vermont author of the book, Lindsey Stoddard) has been cancelled.

In the planning stages now, a monthly book club is for kids ages 8-12. We will read fun, engaging books! Read the book prior to the meeting and come to discuss! We'll eat fabulous Nino's pizza and talk about the book we just read.

Once a month, day and time to be decided.

For the third year in a row, Nino's Pizza of Middlebury has generously donated pizza for our book club! Thank you, Nino's! Order a pizza from them tonight! 388-7755

Book club meetings will held in the bookstore and guided by Jenny, a Vermont Book Shop bookseller. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. Email to RSVP or for more information. Book club books can be purchased at store (20% discount), but book purchase is not required. 

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!

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. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Middlebury!” passport at the Vermont Book Shop (38 Main Street) or at Ollie's Other Place (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 is back this summer to liven up your summer reading!

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.
