Kids, join the club!

The Mayor and the Grand Rapids Public Library have picked out 12 great books. You can read right along with the Mayor. Sign up today to receive an email from the Mayor each month.

Join the Mayor’s Book Club for Kids!

Pick up a booklet at your favorite Grand Rapids Public Library location or print one out. After you read each book, get a stamp at the Library. When your booklet is full you’ll get to pick out an official Mayor’s Book Club button! You can also download your very own Mayor’s Book Club poster.

Request a Visit from the Mayor

If you are interested in having the Mayor read in your classroom, please submit the information below and we will get in touch with you soon. Mayor Heartwell only visits one school per month on a pre-determined schedule, therefore openings are limited. We are trying to visit each elementary school once before we visit again.
