First Chapters is designed for beginning chapter book readers. Call 330-259-3394 to listen to one of our librarians read the beginning of a chapter book. You can then borrow the book from Hoopla or Curbside Pickup to finish reading it. There will be a new book every Monday throughout Summer Discovery.
The First Chapters book for the week of June 15-21 is Ivy + Bean Doomed to Dance by Annie Barrows. This is book number 6 in the series. The first chapter of the book is called Ballet or Bust. Best friends Ivy and Bean are inspired to take ballet lessons after looking through a ballet book that Ivy’s grandma sent her. Of course, ballet is not what the best friends expected and they scheme to find a way to quit.
The Take and Make craft for this week is a crab. Please call the library at 330-259–3399 to request Ivy + Bean books and craft materials from curbside service.
The following titles are available as eBooks through our website or through Hoopla:
