Read Me A Book Club

What do goo monsters, ocean creatures with tusks, and a wolf in granny PJs have in common?! They’re all coming to you this winter at Read Me a Book Club!

Read Me a Book Club is geared toward emerging readers in grades K-2 and their grown-ups. Each month will include a featured read-aloud, as well as family-friendly games and activities. Registration is required.

You do not need to read before the meeting, nor do you need to have a copy of the book to enjoy book club. If you would like to follow along while listening to the read aloud, Youth Services has a limited supply of the books for participants to check out with a library card. A limited supply of activity bags with materials that tie-in to the monthly book selection are also available.

For more information or to register, visit https://www.ecpubliclibrary.info/kids/read-me-a-book-club/ or call Youth Services at 715-839-5007.

VOX Books Now Available!

VOX™ Books have come to the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library! VOX™ Books capture children’s attention by combining a book into an all-in-one read along. Inside of the front cover is an attached audio device which reads the book aloud to your child. With these great books, there are no need for screens or CDs. Children simply push a button to listen. These are great for pre-readers, emerging readers or even seasoned readers!

Ready to let VOX™ books spark your attention? Find titles here: VOX™ Books on Bibliocommons or by searching for “pre-loaded audiobooks” in the catalog.

Place a hold on any of the selected titles with your library card and pick them up using the Park and Pickup Service.
