My daughter's 3rd & 4th grade elementary teachers were looking to enrich their students by forming a "book club". ...The WDM Library was an invaluable source of information. They helped guide us with book suggestions, project ideas and discussion topics.  ...The students loved the book club, and all of the participants developed a deeper comprehension and love of reading. They still talk fondly of the club, and continue to discuss great books amongst each other.
