Paperback Pals is a book club for youth 3rd - 5th grade.
If you like to read, this is the program for you. We usually read OBOB books, so this is a good group if you're interested in competing. We read the book in advance, then discuss it during the meeting. Every meeting ends with an activity.
When you register, you receive a free copy of the book while supplies last. Register calling (503) 625-6688.
This program meets in-person and in a Zoom room. If you attend in-person, meet in the Community Room (off the City Hall lobby). If you join us in the Zoom room, you will get the link for the program a day in advance.
