About the OPLbery Club
The OPLbery Club is an annual mock Newbery club at the Ossining Public Library that began in 2010. The club members read and evaluate newly published books written by authors living in the United States. The club meets monthly through January, when they award the OPLbery Medal to the year’s most distinguished book. The club is open to children who are in 4th grade and up ONLY.
Due to the unusual circumstances this year, we will be meeting monthly on Zoom. If you are interested in joining, email Debbie (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tricia (email@example.com).
Our summer meeting dates are Thursdays, July 9 & August 6, at 11 am.
Meeting dates for Fall 2020:
Fridays at 4 pm on Zoom
September 11, October, 9, November 13, December 11, & January 8, 2021
