First Chapter Fridays

Banner with the text, "First Chapter Fridays: Via Facebook Live"

Trying to find a great book to read this summer? We will be reading the first chapter of some great books recommended for 5th to 7th graders. We hope you get hooked and want to read the rest! 

These books are available on hoopla and/or Overdrive. Even though WFPL is closed, your library card gives you instant access to the whole book, online.
