Chapter Chat is a book club for fifth and sixth graders that meets at the Kimberly Library on the second Tuesday of every month during the school year. Join anytime! We will have discussions and other fun activities related to each month's book. Pick up your copy of the month's selection at the Kimberly Library front desk.

March's book is The Girl Who Saved Christmas by Matt Haig, the sequel to our January read, A Boy Called Christmas. The first book was so well loved, they begged to read the second! Amelia Wishart was the first child ever to receive a Christmas present. It was her Christmas spirit that gave Santa the extra boost of magic he needed to make his first trip around the world. But Amelia's hope begins to drain away. Santa needs her help, and Amelia must learn to believe again.
