Semillitas is focused on planting the seeds that will grow lifelong readers. Our purpose is to:
• Help develop good reading habits.
• Reinforce the idea that reading can be fun and engaging.
• Provide a comfortable place to discuss ideas and opinions.
Semillitas is a book club designed specifically for girls (grades 1st to 5th). We meet the 1st Friday of every month for a hands-on activity and book talk. There's no assigned booklist OR specific genre or author that we follow. Fiction, non-fiction, history, comic books, poetry, science fiction, it doesn’t matter! We want girls to read what’s interesting to them and come introduce others to it.
Middle and high school students are welcome to join us as mentors for younger readers and to assist with activity prep work. Service hours are documented but you must contact us one month prior to gathering you are interested in helping with.
Parents are welcome to join us. Bakery has fresh baked goods and drinks for sale. Self-serve coffee available for a donation.
