An online book club for kids ages 9-12 and their caregivers with weekly activities throughout November. Registration is required and begins October 19.

The One and Only Ivan is about Ivan, a gorilla who has lived for years in a down-and-out circus-themed mall. After Ivan meets Ruby, a baby elephant who has been added to the mall, he decides he must find her a better life.

This wonderful book, written by Katherine Applegate, received a Newbery Medal and was so highly reviewed that Disney made it into a movie, released to Disney Plus in August. The author also wrote a sequel, The One and Only Bob, which was released in May. Help your child get excited about these books and the newly released movie by joining our November book club.

Registration is required and begins October 19. Beginning November 2, we'll have lots of fun interacting weekly through Padlet, a shared digital wall. Then on November 30 we'll get together live via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. to discuss our overall feelings about the book experience.

After you register, a staff member will email to discuss whether you'd like to read the book electronically or pick up a copy via our curbside service or the Youth Services Desk at the Merchant’s Square Main Library. The email will also contain a link for participating in the Padlet activities.

Zoom login information will be emailed to registrants the morning of our live Zoom discussion on November 30. Your registration allows your family to connect using only one device. Please do not connect with multiple devices.
