Spitfire club, Summer Session. Changing the world, one book at a time! Kindergarten - 3rd Grade.

The Spitfire Club is an extracurricular book club built around a collection of children's literature featuring strong, diverse, female protagonists. By creating demand for and building an inclusive community around diverse girl-positive books, The Spitfire Club enhances literacy and social-emotional skills, nurturing each Spitfire's love of reading, love of self, and love for Spitfires across all communities. Every week girls will get a reading log to take home and track the number of chapters they read, be sure to remind them to bring it back the next week! 

If you have any questions about the Spitfire program email Kayla at kpayne@alexlibraryva.org.
