Book Clubs

Parents: are you interested in participating in a book club with your child? Come get some advice and inspiration at our special “Parent-Child Book Club” program on Monday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. Please register by calling 301-891-7259 or emailing library-programs@spambob.net (put "clubs" in the subject line, please).
Adult and kid participants in various local parent-child book clubs will tell offer tips on starting a book club as well as suggestions for how to get - and keep - a book discussion going. In addition, we’ll hear recommendations for books that work well for various ages (as well as some books that were book discussion duds!).

Among the participants in our program will be members of two new parent-child book clubs: one for mothers and their first-grade daughters, and another for 4th grade boys and their parents. We’ll also hear from participants in a long-running (seven-plus years) mother-daughter book group - the girls will be entering college next year!
Whether you’re in a parent-child book group now, or are thinking of creating one, please join us for this fun program.
