Dates: Wednesdays 7/12, 7/19, 7/26, 8/2, 8/9, 8/16 

Time: Zoom 6:45pm-7:45pm

CLLC is offering our ever popular book clubs via Zoom this summer! We know that Zoom is not always preferred but we feel that offering the book club in this format will allow us to be more flexible with busy summer schedules. 
Our first online book club is being offered for rising 3rd and 4th graders. The book club will be reading Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo. Book club will start the week after the 4th of July and continue until the end of August. After you sign up, we will mail you a personal copy of the book to the mailing address on file. We will email out the Zoom link before the beginning of class. Spots are limited, don't wait! 
We have a certified and experienced teacher, Sarah Svatek that will facilitate the book club online. Some of your children may know Sarah from after school homework help at the center. Sarah is really excited to be working with us this summer and bringing some excitement and guidance to summer reading!
