As promised, here is the follow-up post for the remainder of our September programs here in the Children’s Department. Both of these programs are new, and they are also repeating, so they will be taking place once a month.
First off, we have a great new Saturday afternoon program called Game Time! One Saturday a month, we’ll be setting up our Wii, along with some awesome board games, and we’ll be turning the Multipurpose Room near the Children’s Department into gaming central. From 2:30 to 3:30, kids between the ages of 8 and 17 can relax, meet new people, play games, and partake of our yummy snacks. This is a free activity, but we ask that you register in advance by calling us at 514-485-6900 ext. 4111. The first of these great Saturday Game Time! activities will take place on September 8. We hope to see you there!
Next, we are launching a monthly book group called the Page-Turners for all the ravenous young readers out there. Each month, we’ll have three titles to choose from on our list of thematic reads (first theme up: Mystery). Read any of the books on the list and come share your thoughts with the other members of the group. We’ll then move on to a great activity; it’ll be different each time! So what mystery stories will we be reading in September? Here are the titles to choose from:
The Mysterious Benedict Society
by: Trent Lee Stewart
After passing a series of tests, four children are selected for a secret mission that requires them to go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, where the only rule is that there are no rules.
The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets
by: Nancy Springer
Fourteen-year-old Enola Holmes, disguised as a beautiful woman, finds clues in floral bouquets as she searches for the missing Doctor Watson, a companion of her famous older brother, Sherlock.
The Demon of River Heights
by: Stefan Petrucha
Join Nancy Drew, along with Bess and George, as they search for missing student filmmakers and discover the deadly secret behind the local urban myth known as ‘The demon of River Heights.
So call (514-485-6900 ext. 4111) to register, and I hope to see you there on September 20 at 4:30 pm.
