Our staple program is our monthly book club sessions in which we support the entire spectrum of the development of the child, from 6 months of age to 14 years old (middle school).
Each group has been carefully created with a curriculum that is age-appropriate, culturally relevant, and academically driven.
Each session, your child will meet a guest author, read a focus book, participate in reading challenges, receive reading support, engage in interactive activities, and make real-world connections.
Each child is empowered to share their voice and reminded that their story matters.

Group 2: Bubbly Booklovers
Group 3: The Brainiacs
Group 4: Book Brigade
We will also host four in-person gatherings for participants to meet during the season.
The main component of our book club sessions is that we have a guest author for each session. It is a great way for our readers to meet someone in the literary field and ask questions.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I’m appreciative of the creation of a virtual book club, especially With all that’s going on. My son gets to meet different authors, learn about and read from books that he hadn’t been introduced to. In addition to that, he get to meet young people his age and I’m hopeful that they’ll all get to meet in person one day soon!!"
