JCPL Family Book Club

Share the love of reading with the whole family.

The Penderwicks

The Penderwicks book coverby Jean Birdsall
January 7 – February 23, 2019

Families of all ages are invited to join the JCPL Family Book Club by reading aloud the selected book together in the comfort of your own homes. The purpose of this book club is to promote and encourage the habit of sharing stories aloud and spending time together as a family.

We encourage you to set aside time each week for reading and discussing the book. As a special gift for participating in our program, the first 50 families to register will receive a copy of The Penderwicks to add to their home library collection.

Since this book club does not meet in person, families can post their thoughts, opinions, and “talk” with other participants on our blog. The blog can be accessed at:

We encourage all families to try to finish reading the book by February 23rd. To wrap up our program, all of our participating families will be invited to attend a party at the library on that date. Registration for this event is required, and you can RSVP by calling the JCPL Children’s Desk at 859-885-3523 ext. 227. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Juliana Gaddis at ext. 239 or Kate Irwin at ext. 240.
