The teacher's funeral : a comedy in three parts

Our June Tween Reads book selection is The Teacher's Funeral: A Comedy in Three Parts by Richard Peck. In rural Indiana in 1904, fifteen-year-old Russell's dreams of quitting school and joining a wheat threshing crew are disrupted when his older sister takes over the teaching at his one-room schoolhouse after mean old Myrt Arbuckle "hauls off and dies."

participants will engage in a lively discussion and entertaining activity while enjoying a tasky snack.

It’s that time of year again!

Time to join the Summer Reading Club!

Stop into the Children’s Library beginning on Saturday, June 14 to sign-up.  Each child will receive a reading log to keep track of their reading.  Sign-ups continue until Saturday, August 2.   

Here's how the tween level works:

For every 15 minutes of reading, students will cross out a picture on their log.  When they have read for 10 hours, it’s time to pick up a reward. When they have finished another 10 hours of reading, it's time to pick up another reward.  Upon completing the last 10 hours of reading students will receive a raffle ticket which will enter them into a raffle for a gift certificate from  The Bookworm in Bernardsville. Students must be entering grades 5 or 6 to participate in the tweens level.
