YOU Be the Judge!

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.
