Xtreme Readers 4th-5th Grade Book Club Meets in May

Attention 4th and 5th graders! Did you ever read a book that you loved so much you couldn’t wait to talk about it with your friends? If so, the Xtreme Readers Book Club is perfect for you. This month, we are reading the New York Times bestselling story about kindness, friendship, and hope, Wishtree, written by Katherine Applegate. Our next virtual meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 25 @ 6 PM. Register with your Livingston Library Card through the calendar on our website. You will receive an email with a link to join the Zoom meeting the day before the event.  Once registered, pick up the book at the Patron Services Desk at the Library, or download the audiobook from eBccls. Participants are encouraged to help turn the tree on the Youth Terrace into our own wishtree. I hope to see you there! Happy Reading, Gina Vaccaro, Head of Youth Services
