First Partner's Summer Book Club

First Partner's Summer Book Club

The State Library is working with First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom on the First Partner's Summer Book Club for kids ages 3-12.

Each week, from June 7 through August 2, the First Partner or a special guest will read a story, hosted on the Governor's YouTube page (links below). The first reading, Grandad's Camper, will go live at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 7. Storytimes are fun, family activities for preschoolers (ages 3-5), but all are welcome to join. 
 
The First Partner’s Summer Book Club is a 10-week initiative to promote children’s literacy and participation in summer reading programs hosted by local libraries throughout the state. Launched in partnership with the California State Library, First 5 Association of California, and First 5 California, the First Partner’s Summer Book Club offers California families opportunities to keep children engaged all summer long.
