Books & A Bite Event

Do your kiddos love to tell you all about the books they’re reading, while they unwind from a day at school over a snack? Do they like to share every last detail because they happen to be quite enamored with reading? Well then, you may wish to consider the monthly Ankeny, IA library event that’s just for kids and that might put quite a smile on your children’s faces! It’s Books & A Bite!

The Event

The Books & A Bite event is a monthly experience, during which kids from the community gather to talk about what they’re reading. In addition to sharing with you at home, they’ll get to have discussions with peers about their favorites (their not so favorites), and possibly strike up a stimulating conversation or pick up tips for additional books to read! Oh, and they’ll enjoy a snack, too!

Event Invite List

This Books & A Bite event is for kids ages eight through 11 (in third through fifth grades).


Simply contact the Children’s Reference Desk to register your child.
