ASHEBORO – A second book club is coming to the Asheboro Public Library Children’s Room beginning in September.
The BOB (Battle of the Books) Book Club is for fourth and fifth graders who either participate or are interested in the Elementary Battle of the Books. The intent is enjoyment of BOB titles outside of the competition.
The club will meet at 4 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month beginning September 3. Participants at each meeting will consider one of the books from this year’s list, and the meetings will incorporate thematic, engaging activities related to the book.
All interested fourth and fifth graders are invited, and encouraged to bring their own copies of the books or check out an available library copy.
Titles up for discussion are:
· September 3: Hatchet by Gary Paulsen;
· October 1: How Tia Local Came to Stay by Julia Alvarez;
· November 5: Extra Credit by Andrew Clements;
· December 3: Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
The Children’s Room’s “Max and Imaginary Friends Book Club” for children in grades 2-5 continues on the third Wednesday of each month.
Contact Head of Children’s Services Amy Matthews at 318-6804 for more information. The library is located at 201 Worth Street in Asheboro.
