Mother/Daughter Book Club

  Follow Scituate Town Library on Facebook Follow Scituate Town Library on Pinterest


The Mother/Daughter Book Group has been meeting since June, 2008, to discuss books of interest to both young girls and their mothers or other adult caregivers.  

The group meets at intervals of a month or two apart. Both the adults and girls read the books which the group has selected and then come for discussion, craft, and snacks.  Most of the girls are in grades 3-5, although the group is open to other ages as well.  

There is a display and sign-up sheet in the Children's Room.
