  • Your artwork and book reviews will be shared with the community

  • You'll have the chance to win prizes

  • You'll be a part of a group of library lovers!

Sign up now!

You are welcome to join our club:

  • If you a newborn, a sixth grader, or anywhere in between;

  • Whether you attend a school, daycare, or formal educational program or not;

  • If you live in Millbury or another town in Massachusetts!

Master of Minutes Reading Challenge

 

To kick off our program, we have a challenge for kids from birth-sixth graders! For November and December, read a total of five hours each month.

 

Track your reading through the Beanstack website--create an account, or if you participated in the Summer Reading Program, use the same account. You can sign up for both months now!

 

Log your minutes to earn reading badges, and take part in our monthly activities to earn activity badges.

 

Complete the challenge, and you name will be entered into a drawing to win a pack of books in January!

November Kids' Club Activities

Do these activities during the month of November. If you take part in our Master of Minutes reading challenge, you can use two of them to earn an activity badge. Or, just do them for fun!

 

Do It!: Try this outdoor scavenger hunt, and send us a photo of what you find at illml@cwmars.org.  

  • Pinecones: make a pyramid with them

  • Two different seeds, nuts, or berries

  • A turkey decoration

Community: Make a Thanksgiving Card for a senior citizen in Millbury, then drop it off at the library by Friday, November 20th at 5pm. We will take it to the Senior Center to be distributed on Thanksgiving! (Cards must be received in the library book-drop by Nov. 20th for time to quarantine before delivery. Include a Thanksgiving message or a picture, but no political themes, please!)

 

Read Broadly: November is Native American History Month! Go to our catalog and check out a book on Native American history, or one with a Native American protagonist. E-books and audiobooks count too!

Just for Fun: Thanksgiving Crossword--download the crossword below! If you don't have a printer, just call the library and we will print it for you. You can pick it up through a Curbside pickup appointment.
