New Book Club for kids in grades 4-6 starts April 20

Lots of activities for both children and adults will be available at the Orrville Public Library in April.


Orrville Public Library is starting a Book Club for grades 4-6. This will be held the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. The first session will be April 20, and registration is required. Participants will share thoughts about the book and participate in a game, activity or craft or get a snack that pertains to the book.

The first book to read is “The Wild Robot” by Peter Brown. In this book robot Roz is on a remote, wild island with no idea how she got there or how she will survive. At first the wild animals don’t seem very helpful. But then Roz’s mysterious past comes back to haunt her. Multiple copies of the book will be in the children’s department.

Register on the website calendar at or call the children’s department at 330-683-1065.

April Book Club

“Firekeeper’s Daughter,” the debut novel of Angeline Boulley, is the book to read for Orrville Public Library’s April Book Club. As a biracial person, Daunis Fontaine felt she never quite fit in. She hopes that will all change when she begins college. When tragedy strikes, she puts her future on hold to care for her mother. Then as the witness to a murder, she agrees to go undercover for an FBI investigation. But how far is she willing to go for her community?

Pick up your copy of the book at the circulation desk and come to the Book Club on Thursday, April 13 to share thoughts on the book. Come to either the 10:30 a.m. or the 6:30 p.m. gathering. No registration is needed.
