Upper Elementary Book Group

  • Shelby County Public Library 57 West Broadway Street Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

This group is geared toward those in 3rd-5th grades. Every third Thursday we will talk about the book that we read for the month at 4pm. You’ll get a book to take with you to read for the next month.

We’ll also discuss other books we’ve been reading or other interesting parts of our lives. We’ll have an activity or a craft of some sort each month. There are usually snacks! If you can’t make it to the meeting, you can stop in and pick up the book anytime at the youth services desk!

How are books chosen? Often, book options are provided by the librarian and choices are made by votes. Sometimes, the librarian chooses the material.

What if I didn’t enjoy the book? Life would be boring if we all liked the same things!

Can I come if I don’t finish the book? Yes! Just know that there might be spoilers if you do!

What if I can’t make it this month? It’s not a requirement. Just come when you can!

What if my dog eats the book? Let me know immediately of any damage done to your book and we’ll figure out what needs to be done.

Do I come alone? Feel free to come to the meeting with or without your parent(s). Whatever makes you comfortable.

Rules: Of course there are rules. There are only a few simple ones. And they are VERY easy to follow. I promise.

  • Be respectful of one another.

  • Be respectful of the materials.

  • The books given to you by the library for the book group are to be treated with care and returned to the library.

  • You must listen to the librarian in charge.

  • Have fun!


These are the books that we have planned for 2019. If any titles change, we’ll be sure to update the list! The book discussion group will meet in the youth department.
