VIRTUAL THIRD GRADE BOOK CLUB has been canceled but…
Our library based book club for kids has not evolved so we have changed to a school-based group in partnership with Red Sandstone Elementary school. Currently, we are reading “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes” by Eleanor Coerr. Reach out to Cricket if your child would like to be part of a similar book club over the summer. With enough interest, we will put it together at a mutually agreed upon time. Email Cricket at email@example.com more information if you’re interested.

This is a new club and all interested girls in this age group are encouraged to join us.
