SPL offers book clubs – Fulton County Expositor


The Swanton Public Library announced options for the book club and storytelling hours this month.

The virtual book club is for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. There are four age categories.

Each book will come with a blank review form, a few questions you can think about, and some small activities or crafts related to the book. Go to the library to pick up your free book and package.

The book for the K-3 classes is “Charlie and Mouse” by Laurel Snyder. The book for grades 3-5 is “Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things” by Lenore Look.

The book for levels 5-8 is “Esperanza Rising” by Pam Munoz Ryan. The book for grades 9-12 is “Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood” by Marjane Satrapi.

The library also offers story time kits for preschoolers.

Each month, they choose two picture books from the Storyline Online website to showcase and put together packages to take home. The books are read by famous people and celebrities and brought to life with the help of illustrations.

Activities included will be the color game played at story time, a handout with nursery rhymes and web links, coloring sheets, stickers, activity sheets, an instrument and a craft.

From September 7-18, the book is “Carla’s Sandwich” by Debbie Herman. From September 8 to October 1, the book is “A Bad Case of Stripes” by David Shannon.

In addition, the Coding Club meets on Mondays and Fridays at the library. Up to five coders at a time can come to learn coding skills. The coding is open in August every Monday and Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 5.15 p.m.
