Niagara University's Academic Complex will serve as the site for a new children's book club developed by the College of Education's Family Literacy Center.

Research confirms that student motivation is a key factor in successful reading. Book clubs can be an excellent venue for building excitement and friendship over good books.

To that end, the Family Literacy Center at Niagara University is presenting an Enrichment Book Club for children in grades 2-8, which begins March 17.

Sessions will take place at Niagara University (Academic Complex, Room 125) from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on March 17 and 31, and April 7, 14 and 28.

There is no cost to register.

The curriculum will be coordinated by Dr. Kathleen McGrath, director of the Family Literacy Center, and graduate students in NU’s advanced literacy specialist program.

“The small group setting will invite children into active learning and provide them with opportunities to speak, interact, and exchange points of view,” noted Dr. McGrath.

For registration information, please contact Dr. McGrath at 716.286.8309 or Jill Maier at 716.286.8306, or email ude.aragain@clf.
