New “Sports Talk” Club for Kids Grade 4-6 Starting February 26th
Know a kid who loves sports? The Town of Pelham Public Library is introducing a program to encourage youth literacy through an interest in sports. The “Sports Talk” club will expose children to a variety of genres and media related to sports including realistic fiction, non-fiction, and sports journalism and multimedia. This club will be led by Josh Berger, a teacher at P.S. 71 in Pelham Bay who is interning at the Library as part of an Educational Leadership Certificate Program at Manhattanville College. The club will meet on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 pm and will culminate with a group reading of Batting Order by Mike Lupica. You can pick up books and reading materials at the circulation desk before the program. If you have any questions, please contact Children’s Librarian Oz Coto-Chang at firstname.lastname@example.org or 914-813-1657.
