Join us online for Not Your Boring Book Club every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m!
Geared for ages 9-12, we’ll be reading New Kid by Jerry Craft.
New Kid is an award-winning graphic novel that tells the story of seventh grader Jordan Banks. Jordan loves nothing more than drawing cartoons about his life. But instead of sending him to the art school of his dreams, his parents enroll him in a prestigious private school known for its academics, where Jordan is one of the few kids of color in his entire grade. This is the first graphic novel to be awarded the Newbery Medal.
Kits for this online program will be available for pickup beginning January 5, and will include a free copy of the book, as well as supplies for activities and crafts that will take place during the program. To pick up your kit you can either call the library ahead of time and arrange Library Takeout, or you may come into the library to pick up your kit.
Please note that this program is registration-based only and each child needs to be registered separately. Once you have registered for the program, we will send you a link to join the book club via Zoom every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. through February 9.
Parents will be contacted via phone to provide verbal permission for their child to participate via Zoom.
