An online book club for kids ages 9-12 and their caregivers. Registration is required.

Reserve your spot to participate in our October book club! We'll have lots of fun interacting weekly through the easy online app Padlet beginning October 5. Then we'll get together live via the Zoom app to discuss our overall feelings about the book experience on October 26.

In October we’re reading Ruby Holler by Sharon Creech. Thirteen-year-old fraternal twins Dallas and Florida have grown up in a terrible orphanage, but their lives change forever when an eccentric but sweet older couple invites them each on an adventure, beginning in an almost magical place called Ruby Holler.

Registration is required. Padlet activities will be posted weekly beginning October 5. After you register, a staff member will email a link for participating in the Padlet activities and discuss whether you’d like to read the book electronically through Hoopla or pick up a copy of the book via our curbside service.

Our live Zoom virtual discussion of the book will be at 6:30 p.m. on October 26. Zoom login information will be emailed to registrants that morning. Your registration allows your family to connect using only one device. Please do not connect with multiple devices.

Bonding Over Books takes the place of our former Mother-Daughter Book Club. For more information, call 317-844-3363.
