The Liberty and Martino Libraries and the New Lenox Public Library have joined together for the summer reading program. Students were given the activity form for the program in their advisory if they are a current 7th grader and by the 6th grade teachers. The students fill out the form as they meet the challenges each week. At the end, they can participate in the end of the year activities at the public library. During the first week of school in the fall our new 7th and 8th graders return their forms to their junior highs for an award.
Book club will begin at Liberty in October. 8th Grade book clubs will meet every 3 weeks on a blue day during advisories. 7th grade book clubs will meet on red days during advisories. The announcement about the first meeting will be in late September. Students will bring their lunches to the library on these days. We will enjoy our lunch while we discuss our books.
Students are encouraged to read from a selection of books that will be introduced at our first meeting.
"A good book makes you want to live in the story. A great book gives you no choice. "
The Martino Book club begins in September using the books nominated for the Rebecca Caudill award for that year.
Announcements will be made in early September. There are clubs for the 7th graders and 8th graders that run during their lunches/advisories. The clubs meet about every 5 weeks.
