NORTH WEBSTER—Never joined a book club, because of not wanting to get stuck reading a book you don’t like? Then Voyager Book Club at North Webster Community Public Library is something to consider.
Voyager is a different kind of book club in that each member reads a book of their choice, then shares what was read with the group. It’s a good way to discover books and authors who may not have found outside the group. Each month focuses on a specific genre and participants are free to read any book within the assigned genre. Voyager Book Club meets the fourth Monday each month at 5:30 p.m. At the Oct. 25 meeting, the group will be sharing inspirational books. So check out an inspirational book and share the inspiration at Voyager Book Club.
Therapy dogs inspire children to read during Paws-to-Read in the youth department. Children can sign up for a private 15-minute reading session with dogs Gracie, Mindy or Irish to practice oral reading skills. The reading sessions are available 4:15 to 5 p.m. Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, contact the youth services desk.
Did you know teens can get homework help on the library’s website at nweb.lib.in.us? Go to the youth resources page and click on homework helps. There are numerous links that will help students with English, math and science homework. One link, Askrose.org, connects students to an online tutor who guides them in solving math and science problems.
Links are also available to help younger children and adults will find a variety of useful links on the resource tools page as well.
