Did you know that the Fremont Library has three children’s book discussion groups? We currently have a group for 2nd and 3rd graders, Hooked on Books, a group for 4th-6th graders, called Between the Lines, and a 6th-8th grade group, called Tween Page Turners.

Each group meets once a month. Hooked on Books met just this past week and had a great turnout. We still have a few spots available for next month’s meeting.

If you are interested in signing up for the October discussion (October 12th at 4 pm), you will need to stop by the children’s desk to register and pick up a copy of the book.

We Need Your Help

Have you been attending our Page Turners book discussion group here at the Fremont Main Library? If not, would you like to attend? Either way, we’ve got a question for you.

A little background info: As you may already know, the current Page Turners club is for students in the 4th to 6th grades and meets on the last Tuesday of the month from 4-5 p.m.

What’s new: Soon, we will have two book discussion groups: one for 4th to 6th grades and one for 6th to 8th grades.

So here’s the question(s):

  • If you were going to attend one of the two book clubs, what would be the best time for you to come?
  • Would after school be better than evening or vice versa?
  • Is 4 p.m. a good time? Would 7 p.m. be better?
  • Is there one day that absolutely works or doesn’t work for you?

Let us know by replying below.
We appreciate your input because it will help us decide when to schedule the book clubs.

Maniac Magee Book JacketDo you like reading and talking about books? Are you in the 4th to 8th grade?

If the answers are yes, then you need to join our Book Discussion Group here at the Fremont Main Library.

Every month we read a different book and then get together to talk, talk, talk.

This month’s book is Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli.

His name used to be Jeffrey Lionel Magee, but not anymore. There’s a reason he’s called Maniac. Jogging through town, yelling “Hi” to everyone he meets, but not stopping to talk. And who says “Hi” to perfect strangers, anyways? But when he meets up with Amanda Beale, a girl with her own library, he does stop to talk; and that changes everything. The town of Two Mills will never be the same again.

When: February 26 @ 4 p.m. (Lasts about an hour).
Where: Fremont Main Library, Conference Room A

You do need to sign up, so call (510-745-1421) or come by the Children’s Information Desk.
