Children's Book Club: Ages 8 - 11

The Library Card by Jerry Spinelli

The Library Card

The Library Card is about the changed lives of four young people when a blue library card mysteriously appears in each of their lives.

Mongoose turns away from a life of crime and vandalism when he discovers facts and figures in books he never knew existed.  For Brenda, the library card helps her overcome her addiction to TV.  Sonseray, a homeless boy, finds comfort when he attends a library story time. And April Mendez, missing New York City since she moved to the country side, has her life changed when the local bookmobile is "hijacked."  As all these characters discover the world of books and the library, they discover truth about themselves which create new opportunities and relationships in their lives.  

Come join us for a book discussion and pizza at the Children's Book Club meeting on Thursday, Jan. 10 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The book club is intended for ages 8-11.
