Bookworms Tween Book Club in September

This post is brought to you by Katrina Dombrowsky, Youth Services Director for Columbus Public Library. 

The Bookworms Tween Book Club at the Columbus Public Library kicked off their school year with Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein. Here's a photo gallery of their themed meeting; they were even able to Skype with the author for the full book discussion experience!

A picture puzzle that doubles as name cards. The kids had a blast solving the puzzle, which reads: "Knowledge not shared remains unknown. -Luigi L. Lemoncello"

 Dewey Decimal-themed snacks with "Lemoncello-ade"
"Lemoncello-ade"
Dewey Decimal snacks! I can't take complete credit for this one. My creative coworker Erin discovered a version of this and helped me make a shopping list. 000-099 General Knowledge (Smarties), 100-199 Philosophy & Psychology (Hugs), 200-299 Religion (Goldfish), 300-399 Social Sciences (Chocolate coins).

Read-alikes display.
We had a great conversation with author Chris Grabenstein. He shared pictures from the library that inspired his book, gave us some writing tips, and told us some insider information...Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library might be made into a movie!
