Kathy's Tween Library Program Blog

Hi! I run two programs at our local public library for “Tweens,” youth ages 8 to 12 years of age.  One program is a monthly book group, where a different child chooses a book each month; they bring a list of questions to discuss, and also a snack (hopefully related to the book.)  This program is really fun, and introduces them to different genres ranging from graphic novels to poetry.  65 more words
