Howland Public Library, 314 Main St., Beacon, will start the OWLS Children’s Book Club with Miss Shirley in November. From 4 to 5:30 p.m., second and third graders will meet the first Thursday of each month (through May), and fourth and fifth graders will meet the third Thursday of each month.
Using books that they are already reading for school or library books of their own choosing, students will use the English Arts & Literacy skills that they are working on in school to become “book detectives.” They will have fun solving mysteries of new words, characters, plots, and topics. Children must bring a book (fiction or non-fiction) to each session.
Parents or guardians must register with Ginny Figlia, Head of Youth Services, at [email protected] or 845-831-1134, ext.103. The OWLS will not meet when the Beacon City School District is closed due to weather emergencies. Check the calendar at beaconlibrary.org for a listing of all programs.
