Bookgroups - How To Run Them
My advice on starting a children's bookgroup of your own? Find some local homeschooling parents and coerce them into forming a bookgroup with their kids. It isn't hard. Homeschooling parents are ALL about using library resources as it is. And depending on what kinds of homeschoolers are in your area (in my case, lower upper middle class types) you can cater to their needs accordingly.
Or maybe you've found a way to get average public school kids involved. Whatever floats your boat, dude. The point is that the resource you should always use is the Multnomah County Library's booktalk guide webpage. It's constantly updated, has great ideas for future books your bookclub can read, and is honestly the only source on the web that I've been able to locate that's any good at all. Multnomah County Library System. What every library system aspires to be. No joke.
