Calling all Friendly Readers: Are you a reader in grades 1 – 5? Come join The Friendly Readers Book Club! This Virtual Book Club is just for kids and is a safe space to read together and talk about the books we love.

We meet on Wednesdays at 4:00pm via Zoom.

No need to read beforehand. We will read together each week!

Our next book pick is Kasey & Ivy, by Alison Hughes. Physical copies of the book are available to be put on hold via the library website (www.kckpl.org) and digital copies are available via Hoopla (https://ecommunity.kckpl.org/).

Kasey & Ivy by Alison Hughes

Through twenty-six letters to her friend Nina, twelve-year-old Kasey chronicles the often humorous observations and impressions of her unexpected, month-long stay in a geriatric ward for the treatment of a rare but treatable bone disease (“osteo-something-something-itis”). Kasey tries to make her life less dull by wearing her own nightgowns, surrounding herself with her favorite stuffies and developing an unusual exercise routine. Hospital food, insomnia and the germy communal bath are enduring sources of dread, but some new (and unexpected) friends make her life bearable.” (Orca Book Publishers)

The link to all Zoom meetings will be emailed to all registered participants and will be posted on the library’s calendar event page 24 hours before each event. To register for the event, please visit kckpl.org or call 913-295-8250 x 1013.

Miss Chantel hopes to see you there! Let’s get reading!
