Junior Book Club

A book club for school-aged kids! 

The Junior Book Club is a great way to introduce your children to books they might not have read otherwise, while connecting with other children and families to share your thoughts on what you're reading. 

How does it work? 

- Register early to receive a free copy of the book in your Loot Kit, along with some fun swag items and activities. Call us at 403-887-2130, email corrie.brown@prl.ab.ca or message us on Facebook to reserve your Loot Kit (first 15 participants will receive a copy of the book). 

- Read the book, do the activities that accompany the book, then meet at the library to discuss. (If we are meeting via Zoom, we will send out an email with the Zoom link for participants to join and discuss their progress in the book and share their thoughts so far.)

- Create your own cover art inspired by the book to earn fabulous prizes, including a free library card!

Our current selection is Jaclyn Hyde by Annabeth Bondor-Stone and Connor White. The first 15 participants to sign up will receive a free copy of the book in their Loot Kit. (Registration is open now for this event.) 

Meet to discuss this book on September 17th, October 1st, and October 15th, then join us for a wrap-up party on October 29th!

Jaclyn Hyde Book Cover

"In this reimagining of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a secret potion accidentally turns eager-to-please eighth grader Jaclyn into Jackie, a goblin-like monster who’ll do anything to win at everything she does—no matter how much chaos she creates along the way.

Now, if Jaclyn wants to save her school, her friends, and herself from her perfectly horrifying alter-ego, she’s going to have to screw up her courage and risk it all—even if that means admitting that she never was as perfect as she seemed." - http://annabethandconnor.com/jaclyn-hyde

Coming up in November: The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani
