Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT BOOKS CAN I READ?
You can read any books that interest you this summer!
But if you’re looking for suggestions, we’ll have books on display in the Vroman’s Children’s Department
and our Lead Archeologists (booksellers) would love to help you come up with ideas.
WHAT DO I WRITE FOR MY SUMMARY?
Think of it as a short book review (maybe one paragraph) about what you thought of the book. For ideas of what to write, think about words (such as fast-paced, funny, scary, heart-breaking) that describe what the book was like or how you felt about it.
Drop these off anytime over the summer, and we’ll add your notes to our Explorer Wall of Fame.
CAN I PARTICIPATE AT VROMAN’S HASTINGS RANCH LOCATION?
We’ve got great Lead Archeologists (booksellers) at Hastings Ranch,
and they will also be recommending books and tracking your progress all summer long!
In addition to any special events they may have this summer, they host a story time every Tuesday at 10am.
WHAT EVENTS DO YOU HAVE?
Vroman’s regularly offers author events for children’s & YA titles. For little ones, we offer Storytime with Mr. Steve every Wednesday and Saturday at 10am. For teens, we have a monthly YA book club called Mischief Managers, which meets at 4pm on the 2nd Sunday of each month. We also have a Middle Grade book club, Tribe of Endless Reading, which meets at 4pm on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
