It's CHILDREN'S BOOK WEEK!

Children’s Book Week, established in 1919, is a celebration of books and the connection they bring. It is celebrated this year during May 6th - 12th.


Check out our event calendar and see the storyhours that are planned. Any evening storyhour can be registered for while slots allow on https://www.brookecountylibs.org/events. However, the day time ones on Monday and Wednesday, you must call Ms. Kim to personally register for those 304-737-1551 ex. 106 as some locations could be full (the Main currently is.)


But what is another way you could celebrate?




JOIN Club No Rules Just Read!

Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Children’s Book Week. This year we invite you to join CLUB NO RULES JUST READ. How do you join? You read!


That’s right…all you need to do is read something during the week, and you are in! Of course, you can do more than that, we have some fun resources and ideas if you and your friends or family want to go big...and you don't even have to the tell the library BUT let your friends know. You can just do it and RULE!


The No Rules Rules

  • Read a book (or magazine, or audiobook, or comic, or newspaper, or poem, or instruction manual, or…) sometime during Children’s Book Week. 

  • Read for 5 minutes…no, no, 30 minutes… no, no, an hour. Ok, just read for however long you can/want

  • Read alone

  • Read with a friend

  • Read to a friend

  • Read to a group

  • Read in silence in a group

  • Read a book you have never read, or read a book you have read too many times to count

  • Read the same thing as everyone else, or something different

  • Pick the weirdest place you can think of to read

  • Pick the most comfortable place you can think of to read

  • Read outside…or inside

  • Read upside down, or read an upside down book

  • Read fast, then slow, then fast again

Above all, HAVE FUN!


Whatever you do, make sure everyone knows you are in the club with this badge. Post it online and use #ClubNoRulesJustRead, or make this into a button, coloring page, iron-on badge, or whatever you want!
