50 Book Club

Each year, Paterson school library media specialists and teachers help children keep track of their reading. Each child who reads 50 books is honored on 50 Book Club Day on the first Thursday in June at the Paterson Free Public Library. 50 Book Club members receive a certificate, personalized stickers, bookmarks and a poster with all the winners of that year.

Kids who read, succeed! And we can all encourage our children to read. To encourage reading, Paterson Public Schools, the Paterson Free Public Library, and PEF are partners in the Paterson 50 Book Club.

In 2019, over 2,200 children read 50 books or more!  Wouldn’t you like to see your child’s name on the poster?  We would!  Click to view the 2019 poster.
