PERRYSBURG - Ahoy mateys! Children ages 7 to 10 who love to read are invited to join the new Bookaneers book club at Way Public Library.
Even kids who just like to read, or think they might enjoy a fun book are welcome, said Kinsey Zeisler, youth services librarian at Way.
She said she's all for kids picking up any reading selection that may spark an interest in books.
"Any kind of book, whether it's a classic like 'Walk Two Moons' or (popular like) 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid,' it's good," Zeisler said.
The first book for the Bookaneers will be "The Magical Ms. Plum" by Bonny Becker. Copies will be available at Way starting Sept. 12, with the discussion set for Oct. 10 from 4 to 5 p.m.
"It's about a teacher. Her name's Ms. Plum and she's always everyone's favorite teacher," she said.
Kids clamor to have a look in Ms. Plum's classroom closet, which is magical.
"Everyone once in a while she'll send a kid into the closet to get a supply, and they come out with someone strange or out of the ordinary," said Zeisler, who added that the person or animal emerging from the closet usually relates to the child and some type of obstacle he or she has, such as shyness.
"It's a really cute story."
She's hoping 10 to 15 kids join the book discussion, and will probably close the group at 20.
Bookaneers programs will be offered in November and December, then again next year in April, May and June.
The Pizza & Pages Teen Book Club, for ages 11-15, resumes on Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. at Way.
The first selection for the fall is "Divergent" by Veronica Roth. Books are available for checkout at the Youth Services Desk.
Story times for little ones have already started.
Time for Twos, for ages 24-35 months, began meeting on Tuesdays.
Way Public Library also has fall sessions for babies (6 to 11 months and 12 to 23 months) and preschoolers (ages 3 to 6 years old).
To register or for more information, visit www.waylibrary.info or contact the Youth Services Department at (419) 874-3135, ext. 116.
