The first thing you need to know is that all Pizza & Books information has moved to the Club Middle School webpage. You can go there by visiting www.clubmiddleschool.wordpress.com and clicking on the Pizza & Book tab. All the information you need can be found there, updates will be more frequent at this website, as well.
This month’s meeting will be on Sunday, September 30th. Guys will be from 1pm-2:30pm and Girls from 3pm-4:30pm. Please sign up at www.manliuslibrary.com and click on the Events Calendar in order to attend.
The second thing you need to know is that Pizza & Books, at least for part of the year, will have more of a focus than in previous years. The Manlius Children’s Library is putting on a program aimed at competing genres against each other. MARCH MADNESS (for Books)! is an interactive reading program for the Middle Schoolers. 5th-8th graders can vote on their favorite book within a genre (their are two choices for each genre) throughout the month of September. They will then get to decide, each month, which genre should “win” over the over. Pizza & Books will help support this program by having those of you who participate read the books that are being pitted against each other.

The third thing you need for this month’s Pizza & Books is a list of books that you can read! MARCH MADNESS (for Books)! “Draft” Picks will give you the list of the books that you can pick from this month. You can come to the Children’s Circulation Desk and pick-up a copy of any book on this list.
Finally, there is always the Pizza & Books – Book Review Form. You must have a completed form with you when you come to the Pizza & Books meeting on September 30th.
Hope to see you all there!
