Social Justice Begins With MeBook Club for Kids
Join the Book Club!
Children ages 4-11 can explore social justice topics that impact their daily lives through children’s literature. GVSU, GRPL, and community volunteers will read children’s books on that month’s social justice topic. After the book readings, we discuss the month’s social justice topic in small groups and enjoy a snack and themed craft activity.
This program is a partnership between the Grand Rapids Public Library and the School of Social Work at Grand Valley State University. The Social Justice Book Club for Kids meets on the second Saturday of every month at the Main Library.
